Economists in Istanbul

I am in Istanbul, Turkey.  Tonight the World Congress for Environmental Economics starts.  Today I went for a two hour boat ride with Jing Cao and Shan Li and took this photo.  We had a great time on the water.

Soon, I will arrive in Tel Aviv.  This has been an action packed trip as I have visited two cities in Italy, three 4 cities in Croatia and now am in Turkey.  Israel and China are my next stops.

A slight piece of boasting.  Google Scholar informs me that I have reached 7,000 career cites.    For a 1993 Ph.D, that averages out to roughly 1 cite a day for 21 years.   My medium term goal is to reach 20,000 GS cites in 5 years.   That would be a respectable number of cites.
