Economics of Inequality and Public Policy

when 22 July 2024 - 25 July 2024
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 150

In this series of lectures, I will first provide an overview of recent research that advances our ability to measure inequality and understand its causal drivers (Lectures #1-#3). I will then discuss various intersections between inequality and public policy: tax enforcement (Lecture #4), formal and informal insurance (Lecture #5) and monetary policy (Lecture #6).

There will be a small number of slots for participants to present their own research and receive feedback from the other participants and the lecturer. If you are interested in presenting at the summer school, please indicate that in your application and enclose a short description of your project (around 1-2 pages).
