Beijing Normal University hosts a larger number of prominent Chinese labor economists lead by GLO Fellow & Professor LI Shi, including the Dean of the Business School, Professor LAI Desheng, and GLO Fellow & Professor Chunbing Xing. Professor LI Shi had invited Klaus F. Zimmermann while resident in Beijing for research talks and a seminar presentation.
On Friday October 26, Zimmermann visited Beijing Normal University to provide a research seminar on “Arsenic Contamination of Drinking Water and Mental Health”.
The seminar was chaired by GLO Fellow & Professor Li Shi, who also introduced Zimmermann to the very large audience. The presentation was based on a revised version of his recent Princeton University Discussion Paper (Working Paper #607, Princeton University, Industrial Relations Section). The discussion was lively and Zimmermann has received a larger number of very useful comments.
