The predecessor of The Research Institute of the Finnish Economy (Etla), Taloudellinen Tutkimuskeskus (Economic Research Center), began operations on August 1, 1946. The Institute has thus been operating for 70 years. Etla organized a 70th anniversary seminar for invited guests on August 29 in the Helsinki University Great Hall. The seminar’s keynote speaker was Professor Erik Brynjolfsson from Massachussets Institute of Technology.
