These effects are likely to differ by countries and societal groups. Submissions on the following and related topics will be considered:- the distributions of living standards, inequality, poverty, and mobility before and after the 2008 Financial Crisis- micro and macro models on the (causal) relationships between inequality and economic development / crisis and empirical tests of such models- policy lessons: the role of public policies for economic growth and inequality during the 2008 Financial Crisis- cross-country comparisons, e.g. between rich and poor countries, and comparisons across different societal groups[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
