|08/06/2021||CEPR Advanced Forum in Financial Economics (CAFFE) 10, Online Seminar|
We are delighted to announce that the CEPR Network on Financial Economics is launching a virtual seminar series at the start of the academic year.
The CEPR Advanced Forum for Financial Economics (CAFFE) will be organized by Laurent Calvet, Kim Peijnenburg, and Raman Uppal from EDHEC Business School. Its objective is to make cutting-edge finance research available to researchers based in Europe and around the world. There will be one seminar each month covering all topics in Financial Economics. The seminar is open to all participants but special emphasis will be placed on European-based researchers working on novel issues such as the financial implications of Covid-19. We view this seminar series as a joint venture of all researchers in Financial Economics and we very much look forward to your wholehearted and enthusiastic support.
Each seminar will run for 75 minutes, with 40 minutes allocated to the speaker, 20 minutes to a discussant, and 15 minutes for questions from the audience. The seminar starts just after lunch at 2PM CET (1PM London time), so have your caffè during CAFFE!
On Tuesday the 8 June our speaker is Mariassunta Giannetti (Stockholm School of Economics and CEPR). For more information and to register see here.
|14/06/2021||Euro Area Business Cycle Network Training School: Beliefs and Social Networks, Online Seminar|
|Hosted By: University of Mannheim
Organizers: Klaus Adam and Eleonora Granziera
We are pleased to announce details of the latest EABCN Training School, a course over 2 weeks entitled "Beliefs and Social Networks". Professor Johannes Stroebel (NYU Stern School of Business) will teach the course. It is primarily aimed at participants in the Euro Area Business Cycle Network, but applications will also be considered from doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers, and economists working in central banks and government institutions outside of the network, as well as commercial organisations (fees are applicable for non-network non-academic organisations).
This course will introduce participants to a recent literature that studies the interaction between household and investor beliefs, social interactions, financial markets, and the broader macroeconomy. The first lecture explores the role of investor beliefs in affecting financial markets, reviewing a number of recent research papers that combine survey evidence of investor beliefs with (largely behavioural) models of asset pricing. The second class then discusses the determinants of investor beliefs. The third class explores how social interactions affect investor beliefs and behaviors in the housing market. And the fourth class explores how social networks and social interactions affect a range of other economic outcomes, such as mutual fund investments and international trade patterns. In the process, we will introduce a new data set, the Social Connectedness Index, that measures the extent to which indiviudals across various regions are connected on Facebook. Participants are then encouraged to work on a group project with this publicly available data set to explore how social networks affect a range of economic outcomes. Possible projects include using the Social Connectedness Index to explore the propagation of economic shocks across geographies, or to forecast the spread of Covid-19.
The course is divided into four lecture sessions taught over four days, followed by a practice/presentation session the following week.
14-17 June 2021:
Session 1: Investor Beliefs and Financial Markets
Session 2: The Determinants of Household and Investor Beliefs
Session 3: Social Interactions and Beliefs in the Housing Market
Session 4: Social Networks and Economic Outcomes
25 June 2021:
Group presentations: Data work with Social Connectedness Index
The course will take place online. More information about logistics will be circulated closer to the date.
