On June 2-3, 2014, the Vienna Workshop on Economic Theory was held on "Rational Expectations Equilibrium in honor of Roy Radner". Few people in the profession have contributed more than Roy Radner. Accordingly, a total of 18 papers were presented, all of which touched upon one of the many ideas that Roy Radner has contributed to the discipline of economics. Besides papers on rational expectations equilibrium there were contributions about climate change, general equilibrium with incomplete markets, game theory, networks, bounded rationality (Roy Radner’s keynote lecture), ambiguity, and monetary economics. Participants included Beth Allen (U Minnesota), Bard Harstad (U Oslo), Prajit Dutta (Columbia U), Jean-Jacques Herings (Maastricht U), Felix Kübler (U Zürich), Karl Schmedders (U Zürich), Martine Quinzii (UC Davis) and Michael Magill (UCSC), Larry Blume (Cornell U), Herakles Polemarchakis (U Warwick), Bill Zame (UCLA), Andy McLennan (U Queensland), Nicholas Yannelis (U Iowa), Jan Werner (U Minnesota), Ross Starr (UCSD), and, of course, Roy Radner (NYU, Stern). All participants expressed their gratitude to Roy Radner for advancing the profession and inspiring the research by younger generations.
