The Center for Financial Frictions (FRIC) is looking for new research assistants who are interested in supporting us in our research via data collection and cleaning, calculations, model implementation and information retrieval – application deadline is June 30, 2020
The Scientific Committee received forty-one papers. These papers were first reviewed by a sub-committee to determine which were suitable for publication online. We have decided to publish just six of the papers that were submitted to the competition (see table below). The papers we decided not to publish included some excellent studies that developed our understanding of political decisions but did not speak to the challenges now facing managers of firms. Some of the Members of a separate sub-committee then ranked essays for the purposes of allocating the two prizes.
