Finance: Research, Policy and Anecdotes

Economic Policy Panel in Brussels

Tomorrow and Friday is the 66th Economic Policy meeting in Brussels.  For personal circumstances I will miss it, but there is a great set of papers!  One important highlight will be papers for a special issue on economics and peace – a number of empirical and theoretical papers using economic analysis to contribute to the minimization of violent conflict around the world and summarized in this Economic Policy Digest.  There will also be papers on corporate leverage in emerging markets, on the financing of higher education, the financing of fundamental research and when exchange rate appreciation can help economies expand.
