Where

Chicago, USA [Map it]

Details

In the last twenty years political considerations have become important in financial economics: from the design of the rules that make financial markets viable to politically-motivated changes in bankruptcy law, from political connections in firms to the effects of political uncertainty on investments, politics is playing a greater role in finance research. Yet, this is the only conference dedicated to this topic. For this reason the Stigler Center at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business is launching the second conference on the Political Economy of Finance.

Call For Papers

The Stigler Center at the University Chicago Booth School of Business is seeking papers on topics related to the interaction between politics and business, cronyism, regulatory capture, various forms of subversion of competition by special interest groups, and related to be presented at the Political Economy of Finance Conference on May 17-18, 2018.

Paper Submission Procedure: You are invited to submit papers on topics related to the interaction between politics and business, cronyism, regulatory capture, various forms of subversion of competition by special interest groups, and related. There is a $5 submission fee, payable by credit card. Please use the online submission system:
