Econometrics Conferences 2014

written by Olga Maslovskaya

conferences 014Econometrics is a thorough discipline that demands time and effort to be mastered. For many people who want to pursue a degree in economics it serves as an obstacle, but as we’ve shown before, there are many resources you can use to your advantage to become proficient in it: blogs and podcasts can introduce you to the topic and give practical advice, free online courses will incentivize you to learn systematically and increase your ability to perform a research using different econometrics and statistical software like “R” or “Stata”, and YouTube channels can greatly support your studies by giving access to lectures and tutorials of great professors at any time convenient for you.

For those of you who already feel comfortable enough with at least basic econometrics and see the discipline as a vital tool for any research project and an indispensable part of any empirical study, participating in a conference might be the next step. To help you to take a decision which event to attend, we collected a number of econometrics conferences and workshops worldwide published on INOMICS, where researchers and econometricians gather to exchange experiences and discuss advances in the field (in chronological order): Read more

What is Inequality? Links and Resources

written by Olga Maslovskaya

There exist two sides to every argument; in this one we have on one side a utopian world where everyone is equal and on the other a world where inhabitants don’t want to share what they’ve earned (presumably) by persistence and hard work with others and keep it for themselves. Herein lie the issues of inequality and the question of welfare and income redistribution. There are debates at every level of society, government and especially amongst economists as to where this problem comes from and how to tackle it.

Here is a list of links to economics blogs that are useful for understanding the concept of inequality and economists’ ideas on the topic; as well as a short list of conferences in the field Read more

The Current Crisis And Recovery: Conferences And Blogs

written by Olga Maslovskaya

For the last couple of years we have been hearing repeated, if sporadic ‘rumours’ about the soon-to-be recovery. Different economists have different views on this, and below you can find a list of up-to-date comments about the prospects for the near future, and conferences which are open for registration if you have ideas on this topic to tell the world about.


1. A series of financial shocks have jolted the economy in recent decades, but the experts are not much closer to understanding how such problems develop. The New-York times about a recent IMF conference: ‘Economists Agree: Solutions Are Elusive’

2. Macroeconomist Gavyn Davies about the ‘Great Recession and Not-So-Great Recovery’ in the Financial Times

3. Defining who is the one to blame for the crisis is a pretty tough task. Reasons  for and against blaming the Fed can be found at: ‘Is the Federal Reserve Breeding the Next Financial Crisis?’

4. Quite optimistic comments of Tim Duy about how resilient the current economy is: ‘The Recovery is Real’

5. Jeffrey Sachs on the Crisis, the Recovery and the Future (a podcast).


1. The Conference ‘Supervising Banks in Complex Financial Systems’ on financial institutions, financial stability, complexity, and linkages to the real economy will be held in Frankfurt, Germany.

2. The joint conference by The European Centre for Corporate Engagement (ECCE) at the Maastricht University and the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) ‘Financial Globalisation and Sustainable Finance: Implications for Policy and Practice’ will be held in Cape Town, South Africa.

3. The International Conference on Applied Business and Economics (ICABE) 2013 has the theme “The Role of Financial Accountability and Transperency in Economic Activities” and is aiming to “address the issues that arise from financial speculation and limited disclosure to the build up of a Financial and Economic crisis”. It will take place in New York, USA.

Academizing During Your First Academic Conference

What to expect at your first academic conference and how to prepare for it: first-hand experience

written by Christian Ruiz (Guest Blogger)

There was a certain naiveté in the air when I went to my first academic conference. I thought that all I would have to do is to write a decent paper and to present it to the public. In retrospect this could have ended badly and I wish someone had intercepted me on the way to the airport and given me some key-warnings to know in advance. Thus, after this multifaceted experience, I thought to write the following points in a humble and only half-serious manner.

An academic conference is where scientists and other mostly sun-deprived* human beings dare to get out of their heavily neglected* workspaces in order to academize (*Regressions for these claims will soon be presented by Ruiz et al. under α<0.05 statistical significance). The goal is primarily to present your scientific results to a broad audience – beyond the usual four suspects, who will read your paper anyway – and to know the latest state of research: it wouldn’t be very funny if you invest a lot of time in writing a paper just to find out that someone just published the same thing, right?

A: Preparation before the Conference

  • Know your Discussant

The panels usually consist of a few panelists (you?), a moderator, a discussant and a cheering audience. The discussant is supposed to have read all the presented papers and comments on all of the academic contributions after the presentations. Read more
