Sponsored by the Centre for Studies in Economics and Finance (CSEF), the Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance (EIEF), and the Stanford Institute for Theoretical Economics (SITE), the focus will be the relationships between finance and labor; especially the interaction of financial and labor markets for a broad range of employees, as opposed to the more heavily-studied topic of executive compensation. Possible issues include:

  • role of employees in the governance and financing of companies
  • response of wages and employment to financial shocks with firm restructuring
  • risk sharing arrangements between firms and workers
  • financial development, job reallocation, and employment growth
  • effects of regulation of financial markets on industrial relations
  • human capital, portfolio choice, and asset pricing

The conference aims to bring together researchers from financial economics and labor economics in order to discuss the topic from the point of view of both disciplines. Submissions are open to members of the scientific committee. Each paper will be assigned to a discussant. Participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the conference.
