Topics such as private equity buyouts and their effects on employee health, whether executives are short in supply or not,  and the impact on workers of firm-level uncertainty shocks will be discussed on Monday. On Tuesday research on ownership, control and careers, wealth shocks, workplace automation and corporate financial policy, and house price booms will be presented.
