NBER-Oxford Saïd-CFS-EIEF Conference on Household Finance
21-22 September 2012
Oxford University

The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), the Center for Financial Studies at Goethe University Frankfurt (CFS), the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford and EIEF organize a two-day conference on Household Finance. The objective of the conference is to bring together researchers from the U.S. and Europe who are working in the area of household finance.

The conference venue is the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford.

We define household finance broadly to include the many financial decisions made by households, including the financial functions of payments, saving and investing/portfolio-choice, borrowing/credit, and risk management. Households do not make their decisions in a vacuum, and so the field also encompasses the actions of businesses and government.

Conference organizers: Luigi Guiso (EIEF and CEPR), Michael Haliassos (Goethe University Frankfurt, CFS, and CEPR), Tullio Jappelli (University of Naples Federico II, CSEF and CEPR), Brigitte Madrian (Harvard Kennedy School and NBER), Tarun Ramadorai (Saïd Business School, University of Oxford and CEPR), Nicholas Souleles (The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania and NBER), Daniele Terlizzese (Bank of Italy and EIEF), Peter Tufano (Saïd Business School, University of Oxford)
