Trans-Atlantic Public Economics Seminar
4-5 June 2018
Co-sponsored By: The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) and STICERD at the London School of Economics (LSE)
Location: London School of Economics
Organizers: Hilary W. Hoynes, Camille Landais, and Johannes Spinnewijn.
Income inequality has increased in both the U.S. and the U.K. in the last three decades, generating new interest in the factors that contribute to inequality and the consequences of policies that might affect it.
To provide new insights on the broad topic of inequality and public policy, the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), jointly with the Suntory and Toyota International Centre for Economics and Related Disciplines (STICERD) at the London School of Economics (LSE), will sponsor the 2018 Trans-Atlantic Public Economics Seminar at the LSE. The program, organized by Camille Landais and Johannes Spinnewijn of LSE and Hilary Hoynes of the University of California, Berkeley and NBER, will consist of about twelve papers. Papers from the conference will be considered for a special issue of the Journal of Public Economics, subject to the normal refereeing process.
The conference organizers welcome submissions on any topic related to the general theme of “Inequality and Public Policy,” including but not limited to:
- The impact of taxes, social insurance, and social safety net programs on measured inequality and household behavior;
- The role of labor market institutions, such as unionization, minimum wages, and the size of the informal sector, in affecting the wage distribution and income inequality;
- The contributions of firm behavior, education, skills, and technological change to trends in equality and the incomes of particular groups;
- The measurement of both point-in-time inequality in earnings, wages, income, and consumption, as well as trends in these variables;
- The determinants of inequality spatially, across genders, race, or ethnic groups, and on other dimensions.
