Because of popular demand, we have expanded our research seminar series this year.   The seminar, jointly sponsored by the Economics Department and IBS, is now held twice weekly, on Wednesdays (11-12:30) and Fridays (1-2:30).  While most of the scheduled seminars feature outside faculty, several Friday seminars have been set aside for our PhD students who expect to be going on the job market this year.

So far this year, the research presentations have been Jianping Mei from Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business in Beijing, “Measuring Artist Creativity”;  Michael Zwieback, from Ohio State University,  “Financing-Motivated Acquisitions”; and  Michael Ferrantino of the U.S. International Trade Commission, “Gazelles and Gazillas in China and India.”  Our Ph.D. student speakers have been Rawley Heimer, “Leverage Constraints, Profitability, and Risk-Shifting: Evidence from the Introduction of Dodd-Frank”; and David Simon “Social Networks and Price Discovery.

We will not have a seminar this week on Wednesday because of the school holiday.  On Friday, Ph.D. student Sarah Le Tang will present “The dynamic of capital accumulation: Evidence from Chinese Industrial Plants.”   The schedule for our research seminar series can be found here.
