ISIR Session at ASSA meeting 2015

The International Society for Inventory Research (ISIR) sponsors a session each year at the ASSA meetings. The 2015 meetings will be held in Boston, Massachusetts on January 3-January 5. This year the session is being organized by Thomas Lubik of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond.

The ISIR encompasses research not just on inventories but also on related areas such as plant and equipment investment, or inventory-theoretic approaches to other areas of economics, including money and liquidity. Because your research has overlapped with these areas, we hope you will be interested in participating in the ISIR session next January. If you have (or expect to have) a paper that would be suitable for the session, please send an abstract or a draft of the paper by May 24, 2014 to Thomas Lubik at

Electronic submission is preferred, but you may also send a hard copy to
