14 - 16 April 2021 / Online / The CEPR Network on Household Finance, EDHEC and Think Forward Initiative (TFI).

The CEPR Network on Household Finance and EDHEC are organising the Sixth European Workshop on Household Finance on 14-16 April 2021 which will take place online with the support of the Think Forward Initiative (TFI). The objective of this workshop is to host presentations and foster interaction between Senior and Junior Researchers working in the area of household finance. The workshop will include state-of-the-art research on household financial behaviour and on how this is influenced by other choices, government policies, and the overall economic environment.

The research workshop will include a CEPR-TFI online webinar on “Finance and Inequality”, organised by Laurent Calvet (EDHEC and CEPR) on Wednesday 14 April 2021 at 6pm CEST. The panel will analyse and discuss the implications of financial markets for the dynamics of inequality. We will consider channels such as equity holdings, mortgage markets, education loans, credit card debt, retirement planning, health insurance, and the determinants of financial fragility. We will also explore financial tools that can help households to better manage their finances and curb inequality in asset returns and debt costs. Following a brief introduction by Michael Haliassos, Stefan van Woelderen, and Laurent Calvet, each panellist will present for about 10 minutes, after which Laurent Calvet will moderate a discussion. There will be an opportunity for the audience to submit questions to the panel.

The confirmed speakers include:
Alberto Bisin (New York University and CEPR)
Jeffrey Sachs (Columbia University)
José Scheinkman (Columbia University)
Florian Scheuer (University of Zurich and CEPR)

22 - 22 April 2021 / online / SUERF and UniCredit Foundation

The Global Financial Crisis and COVID-19 crisis have, among many other things, also affected savings behaviour. Changes involve both aggregate household savings ratios, individual propensity to consume and to save, as well as portfolio choice. While the post-GFC and COVID-induced very low interest rates have likely reduced income motives for saving, crises put precautionary savings into the foreground. In the COVID-19 crisis, new attention was directed to savings motives, given the impossibility to consume, resulting in “forced savings”. The COVID-19 crisis also raises the question whether consumption and household savings behaviour will change more permanently, and beyond the time of the constraints imposed by the pandemic and related containment measures. Such changes would have important permanent consequences on aggregate demand, structural employment/unemployment, potential growth, the sectoral composition of output, the natural rate of interest and, as a result, the environment in which fiscal and monetary policies act.

Abstract:

Population data on capital income and wealth holdings for Norway allow us to measure asset positions and wealth returns before individuals marry and after the household is formed. Using these data we establish a number of novel facts. First, there is assortative mating on the basis of own wealth. Second, assortative mating on own wealth dominates, and in fact statistically annihilates, assortative mating on parental wealth. Third, there is evidence of assortative mating on returns to wealth. Finally, post-marriage returns on family wealth are largely explained by the return of the spouse with the highest pre-marriage return. This suggests that family wealth is largely managed by the spouse with the highest capacity for wealth accumulation. We use simulations to evaluate the effects of assortative mating on wealth, assortative mating on returns, and post-marriage allocation of wealth management tasks on wealth inequality and wealth concentration. Assortative mating on wealth is the dominant force explaining wealth concentration at marriage. Returns heterogeneity resulting from mating on returns and post-marriage allocation of wealth management between spouses plays a dominant role for explaining changes in wealth inequality as couples move through their life cycle.

8 - 9 June 2021 / Online /

The organisers and steering committee of the 21st CEPR Conference on Applied Industrial Organisation (IO) are writing to invite you to submit a paper or to express your interest in attending the conference. The conference will be organised by Myrto Kaloutpsidi (Harvard University, CEPR and NBER), Andrea Pozzi (Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance and CEPR), and Nicolas Schutz (University of Mannheim and CEPR).

After last year’s cancellation and due to the concerns about the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic could still have on international travel and academic gatherings, the event will take place online on 8-9 June 2021.

To better accommodate the online format, the schedule will be adjusted. We will have a limited number of papers presented over two days in sessions held in the afternoon (Central European Time). This should allow a wide audience to connect for the event, through different time zones.

Financial support for the conference is generously provided by the Journal of Industrial Economics (JIE), EIEF, University of Zurich, European Research Council (ERC), Charles River Associates, Cornerstone Research and CEPR.

Conference Details:
The Applied IO conference series seeks to contribute to the understanding of the breadth of topics analysed within the field of Industrial Organisation, including demand, productivity, competition in the short- and long-run, innovation, investment, and auctions, to develop empirical protocols and tests of economic models, to promote the exchange and the dissemination of results at the forefront of research, and finally, to evaluate current competition and regulation policies. It will cover the state of the art in both theoretical and empirical Industrial Organisation.

In the last few years, the conference “returned to its roots” and witnessed enhanced collaboration between IO economists from both sides of the Atlantic.  Fostering this collaboration, we are happy to confirm the attendance and participation of Simon Anderson (Virginia and CEPR), Uli Doraszelski (Wharton and CEPR), Phil Haile (Yale), Jean-Francois Houde (Wisconsin), Jeanine Miklos-Thal (Rochester), Nathan Miller (Georgetown), Aviv Nevo (UPenn), Ariel Pakes (Harvard), Katja Seim (Yale and CEPR), Amanda Starc (Kellogg), and Jidong Zhou (Yale SOM). 

Young European researchers are encouraged to apply to the concurrent CEPR/JIE School for Industrial Organisation.  The goal of the school is to provide a forum for young European researchers in Applied IO to get exposure for and receive feedback on their work.  Based on the success of the 2019 format, researchers accepted to the school will give very short (<10 min) presentations of their work  on  9 June and participate in all the sessions of the main conference.  Given its goals, only young researchers pursuing or having recently (within four years) received a PhD from a European economics program are eligible. Preference will be given to those students expecting to go on the academic job market in 2021-22, with additional (though lesser) preference given to other applicants according to their time since PhD completion. 

Applicants to the main conference that are eligible and wish to also be considered for the school should indicate such with their submission. In such cases, no separate school application is necessary.  Further details about the school are included in its own Call for Papers available here: https://cepr.org/6754/cfp-school

Please forward this call to others, especially junior faculty, who might have papers suitable for the conference or school.  Papers will be selected by a committee of the organisers. Anyone may sign up to receive future calls for this conference at https://portal.cepr.org/21st-ceprjie-conference-applied-industrial-organisation-and-17th-ceprjie-school-applied-industrial.

Paper Submissions, Conference Attendance, and Deadlines:
The deadline for submissions is Friday 12 February  2021 at 18:00 (GMT).  Authors will be notified about whether their paper has been accepted in April 2021.

Authors can upload their submission by visiting the registration link: https://portal.cepr.org/21st-ceprjie-conference-applied-industrial-organisation-and-17th-ceprjie-school-applied-industrial and logging into your CEPR account. If you do not currently have a CEPR account, please create a new profile here https://portal.cepr.org/user/register and then click on the registration link above. If you have any difficulties registering for this meeting, please contact Mandy Chan, Senior Events Officer at [email protected].

In order to allow for arrangements for the online conference, individuals wishing to simply attend the conference should also express their interest via the online form above.  We try to accommodate as many such requests as possible and the online format should only add to our ability to do so. Preference for attendance is given to young researchers and CEPR IO Programme members. 
 
Travel and Accommodation Funding:
Given that this year’s conference will be held online. There are no provisions for accommodation or funding for traveling.

10 - 11 June 2021 / Paris / Banque de France, CEPII, CEPR and University of Surrey

The Banque de France, CEPII, CEPR and University of Surrey are jointly organising a workshop to explore economic dimensions of the “new normal” environment of international trade, which has been severely impacted by recent events and associated rises in trade costs. Increases in tariffs and sanctions (e.g. U.S-China trade war), globalisation backlash, institutional challenges (e.g. Brexit, WTO), and Covid-19 are imposing a rethinking of multilateral trade and the way that firms organise production across borders.
