A BIG MAHALO
The 2013 global conference of the National Transfer Account research network took place at the Faculty of Economics, University of Barcelona, on June 3-8, 2013. The meeting included a two-day international conference (3-4 June) and a three-day workshop (5-8 June) that was structured in two parallel tracks for training and for discussion and working groups.
All of those who attended this very successful meeting wish to thank the hardworking teams who planned the program and made sure everything ran impeccably on the ground. Everyone listed below played an important role. Special thanks go to Ció Patxot, Gretchen Donehower, Jordi Roca, and their helpers: Alba Fernàndez, Nuria Sáez, and Laura Vall•llosera. Every session went smoothly and graciously from the opening welcomes to the final celebration with delicious Spanish cava.
