CALL FOR PAPERS
CSEF-EIEF-SITE Conference on Finance and Labor
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) invite paper submissions on the relationships between finance and labor. While the conference is open to all topics in this area, preference will be given to submissions that deal with the interaction of financial and labor markets for a broad range of employees, as opposed to focusing on executive compensation.
The conference aims to bring together researchers from financial and labor economics to discuss issues from the point of view of both disciplines.
This conference is 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.
