This annual workshop aims to bring together researchers investigating issues of relevance to current public policy. We invite submissions from all fields of applied microeconomics, including (but not restricted to): labor, health and development economics, empirical industrial organization, public finance, economics of education, economics of crime, and demography. This year, one session will be devoted to topics broadly related to “Health, Wealth and Inequality.” Examples of suitable topics include:
• Health and labor productivity, labor supply and retirement age
• Causes of mortality and the implications for long run economic growth
• Effects of policy instruments targeting inequalities in health
The papers should pay particular attention to the identification of causal relationships using rigorous econometric techniques. Preference will be given to papers that are well developed yet can still benefit from group discussion.
The workshop will last for one day. The number of participants is limited to 25, with a maximum of 8-10 invited and contributed papers.
The workshop is organized and financed by the Department of Business and Economics at the University of Southern Denmark. Participation is free of charge and includes registration, breakfast, lunch, and refreshments. Participants are expected to cover their own transportation and accommodation costs (if needed).
