Steve Pressman, of Monmouth University, is trying to organize sessions at the 2012 Eastern Economic Association meetings in Boston on child or family allowances as a BIG for children. These sessions will hopefully lead to a book on Basic Income and the family. The meetings will be held in the Boston Park Plaza Hotel from March 9 through March 11, 2012. If anyone is interested in participating, please contact Steve Pressman at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include an abstract of the paper you would like to present. The deadline for sending proposals to Pressman is October 31, 2011.
