Event details

This event will discuss research approaches in economics and finance: can there be a conflict?


This presentation introduces the two opposite research approaches in economics and finance, done by the same author adopting similar quantitative tools. It aims to give an idea to the audience about how to expand their research horizon. The first study tries to generate a research impact by analysing a social conflict using economic tools. Specifically, it shows how social conflicts can arise over new trade policies and how those can be resolved, focusing on capital mobility between industries.

The second study, with no concern for societal impacts, pursues a way of making more money in financial markets using econometrics. Particularly, it analyses how investors with limited abilities can find industry sectors where they are expected to make more profits.
