Monday, 10:00pm at Humboldt-Universität, Wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Fakultät, Spandauer Strasse 1, 10178 Berlin
Description:

The RTG 1659 invites you from April 13 to 17 to the following short course:

The aim of the course is to study models with heterogeneous agents and incomplete markets in macroeconomics, and to learn how to solve these models
numerically.
We will discuss some classical and some very recent papers on heterogenous agent models. I will provide software tools (my own toolkit and some Matlab programs) that should make the solution of these models as easy as possible.
Some prior experience in programming (in Matlab or some other programming language) would be very useful.

Mo: 10-12 (room 21A) + 14-16 (room 203)
Tue: 10-14 (room 21A)
Wed: 14-18 (room 21A)
Thu: 10-12 (room 21A) + 16-18 (room 125)

Description:

This career event is open to all students, whether they are in their first year or more advanced. Contrary to the job market lecture, we are now going to focus on the non-academic job market as well. The objective of this evening is to give you an overview of possible career paths after your Ph.D.

It will therefore feature three talks:

I. Academic career options (Lutz Weinke, placement director)

II. Non-academic career options (Jan Hansen, WIWEX)

III. Starting your own business (Philipp Tettenborn, Humboldt-Innovation)

There will be room for discussions/personal conversations afterwards.

Date: November 20, 2014

Time: 6:00pm (sharp!)

Room: Spandauer Str. 1, room 220

Tuesday, 10:15am at HU, Spandauer Str. 1
Description:

This short course is offered by the RTG.

Prof. Martimort's part: see attachment.

Prof. Sand's part: This lecture intends to provide a global view on climate agreements in a setting where asymmetric information matters, using the tools of mechanism design. The first part tackles pollution problems where one agent (or group of agents) can affect the well-being of another group of agents. In particular, we will review the work of Kwerel (RES, 1977), Montero (AER, 2008), and Rob (JET, 1989). In the second part, we analyze the case of global public goods and international agreements where all agents have an impact on the environment and at the same time suffer/benefit from the actions of the others. The analysis will be based on articles by Helm-Wirl (JEEM, 2014) and Martimort-Sand-Zantman (2012, CJE 2013).

Final schedule:

November 18 (Martimort)
2:15-3:45pm, 4:15-5:45pm (room 112)
November 19 (Martimort)
9:00-10:30am, 10:45am-12:15pm (room 23)

Description:

This course introduces students to the regulation of financial markets and the participants in these markets. It consists of four parts. The first two parts analyze the financial disclosure requirements of non-financial corporations and the impact of these requirements on corporate policies.

Part IV reviews the economics of financial crises and discusses what regulatory mechanisms exist to prevent financial crises.

Part I: Financial Reporting and Disclosure (Prof. Gassen)

Part II: Recent Changes in Financial Markets Regulations (Prof. Adam)

Part III: Financial Frictions and Macroeconomics (Prof. Weinke)
