September 8-9, 2016 “Mario Cacace” Multimedia Center, Anacapri

The Centre for Studies in Economics and Finance (CSEF), the Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance (EIEF) and the Stanford Institute for Theoretical Economics (SITE) organized a conference on the relationships between finance and labor.

The conference aimed to bring together researchers from financial and labor economics to discuss issues from the point of view of both disciplines. This conference was funded by two ERC Advanced Grants, respectively awarded to Claudio Michelacci for research on “Estimation of General Equilibrium Labor Market Search Models” (no. 293692 – ESEMO), and to Marco Pagano for research on “Finance and Labor” (no. 295709 – FINLAB). Related conferences were organized by CSEF in 2013, SITE in 2014 and EIEF in 2015. For more information, please visit the CSEF’s website.
