Industrial Organization and Corporate Finance

In the wake of the financial crisis, increased attention in economics research has been placed on how financial markets affect the real economy. While researchers have made great strides, many questions still remain. In particular, we have a rather limited understanding of how ownership and financing forms interact with competition, industrial, and tax policy. 

Moreover, more research on how ownership and financing forms affect product market interaction, innovation and social welfare seems warranted.

IFN Stockholm Conference in Vaxholm, June 13‒14, 2013

In an effort to advance research in this area, the Research Institute of Industrial Economics (IFN) is organizing an international two-day conference on Industrial Organization and Corporate Finance. The conference brings together top researchers working on policy-oriented issues in industrial organization and corporate finance. The overarching objective is to shed light on how corporate finance concepts can be more closely incorporated into traditional economic models, and thereby better help guide competition, industrial and tax policies.

The conference is by invitation only, hosted by IFN and organized by Lars Persson (IFN) and Joacim Tåg (IFN) with financial support from the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation.
