CEPR-TFI Online Webinar - Finance and Inequality


CEPR-TFI Online Webinar: Finance and Inequality

Wednesday 14  April 2021

Organised by Laurent Calvet (EDHEC and CEPR)

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.
