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 two-day research workshop is preceded by a CEPR-TFI event on "Household Welfare: Do we need big data?", organised by Paolo Sodini (Stockholm School of Economics, SHoF, and CEPR), at 17:30 on Thursday 7 May at the Swedish House of Finance (Drottninggatan 98).

We solicit papers in the following areas, but other related areas may also be considered:

  • Patterns of asset allocation and debt behaviour over the life cycle
  • Financing retirement and the demographic transition
  • Consumer indebtedness, financial distress and default decisions
  • Behavioural approaches to household finances
  • Financial literacy and financial education programmes
  • Trust, subjective expectations, pessimism, and financial decisions
  • International comparisons of household finances using micro-data
  • Cognitive and genetic studies on individual financial performance
  • Financial advice and legal protection of investors and borrowers
  • The impact of technology on household financial behaviour

The organisers encourage submissions from PhD students in household finance. Students must apply online stating that they are a PhD student and supply their CV. Students should note that, from 2020 on, the best student paper prize will only be awarded once a year at the Household Finance Conference which takes place every Autumn. So, students who want their paper to be considered for the prize should submit it to the Autumn conference, but they are welcome to submit another paper to the Spring workshop.

ESSIM is an annual meeting that brings together about 75 economists from across Europe and key researchers from outside the region. It provides a unique opportunity for macroeconomists from different research institutions and countries to discuss research in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships.

Participation at ESSIM

CEPR cannot accept all applications to attend ESSIM as demand always exceeds the space available. We try to operate the unavoidable rationing as fairly as possible, and in so doing, we assume that those who participate will at least attend the plenary talks and the talks of at least one programme area.
