Conference on Finance, Labor and Inequality

Conference dates

17 Jun 2022 - 18 Jun 2022


“Mario Cacace” Multimedia Center - Anacapri (Capri), Italy


The Centre for Studies in Economics and Finance (CSEF) and the Review of Corporate Finance Studies (RCFS) invite paper submissions on the interaction of financial and labor markets, as well as the impact of finance on inequality. Possible issues include:
• role of employees in the governance and financing of companies,
• response of wages, employment, and career trajectories to financial shocks,
• effects of finance on income and wealth inequality and on social mobility,
• risk-sharing arrangements between firms and workers,
• financial development, employment, and income distribution,
• effects of financial regulations on human capital investment and job reallocation.

The conference aims to bring together researchers from financial and labor economics to discuss issues 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
