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 analysed and discussed the implications of financial markets for the dynamics of inequality. We considered channels such as equity holdings, mortgage markets, education loans, credit card debt, retirement planning, health insurance, and the determinants of financial fragility. We also explored 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 presented for about 10 minutes, after which Laurent Calvet moderated the discussions.
