The Klein Lecture was established in 1997 in honor of Professor Lawrence R. Klein, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1980. He is one of the founders of the International Economic Review. Each year, one of the world's most distinguished economists is invited to give a lecture at either the University of Pennsylvania or Osaka University, and the presented paper is subsequently published in the I.E.R.

Professor Fumio Hayashi (Tokyo) gave the first Klein Lecture at Osaka University on Friday, December 17, 1999 on "Identifying a Liquidity Effect in the Japanese Interbank Market" and it was published in the I.E.R. Vol. 42, No. 2 (May 2001). On Wednesday, April 24, 2002, the second lecturer, Professor Nobuhiro Kiyotaki (LSE) talked on "Liquidity and Asset Prices (with John Moore)," which was published in the latest issue of the I.E.R. Vol. 46, No. 2 (May 2005).
