Cambridge-INET, Faculty of Economics in Cambridge and CFM

Virtual Mini Conference

May 25, 2021 (4:00-7:00 pm BST (UK))

Speakers: Marc J. Melitz (Harvard University), Burcu Eyigungor (Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia), Andrew G. Atkeson (UCLA)

Organising committee: Vasco Carvalho (Cambridge), Miguel Ferreira (Cambridge) and Juan Carlos Ruiz Garcia (Cambridge)

 The “New Economy” is changing rapidly. In the last decade, several trends have emerged: increase in inequality, reduction in the labor share, interest rates in the Zero Lower Bound ZLB, increase in firm concentration, reduction in firm entry rates … and the recent global pandemic.

The conference tackles some of these recent trends from a firm perspective, analysing their origin and consequences for the aggregate economy. Andrew G. Atkeson will speak on the role of family firms on the evolution of wealth inequality. Burcu Eyigungor will show how a low interest rate affects firm entry and yields more concentrated markets. Finally, Marc J. Melitz will discuss how the entry and exit reaction to a large adverse shock, like Covid-19, is amplified by nominal rigidities.

Registration (closes on the 24th of May, 2021 at 4pm)
