CEPR Household Finance Seminar Series

The CEPR Network on Household Finance is launching a new online seminar series on Household Finance. The series is currently run by Cristian Badarinza (National University of Singapore) and Vimal Balasubramaniam (Queen Mary University of London). We meet once a fortnight on Friday (CEST/CET 15:00) on Zoom. This is structured like a regular seminar, with light-touch moderation and opportunities to ask questions during the presentation. The Zoom link to each seminar will be made available on email, one hour before the session.

We are excited to announce the next set of talks in the CEPR Household Finance Seminar series:  

The Seminar Series is currently on a summer break and we will resume in September 2021.
