Credit Booms Gone Bust (Webinar Series and Conference Invitation)

This week, Thursday 18 April, 2019, 1 p.m. (EDT) we are hosting the second webinar of our series Credit Booms Gone Bust.

This collaboration between the Economic History, Financial Stability and Complexity Working Groups aims to introduce young scholars to the frontiers of research on private debt and credit cycles. We are honored to welcome Prof. Matthew Baron (Cornell University) who will hold a lecture on his ongoing research agenda.

Selected attendees of the webinars will be invited to attend INET's Private Debt Initiative conference in New York, 20- 21 June, 2019. Those selected will be provided with a travel stipend and accommodation.

Young scholars who would like to attend the PDI conference should send their CV and a short statement of motivation (max 500 words) to [email protected]
