WIEM 2016 Conference

Warsaw, Poland



The University of Warsaw Library: 56/66 Dobra Str. 00-312 Warsaw

The Warsaw International Economic Meeting, organised by the University of Warsaw Faculty of Economic Sciences and CenEA (cooperating partner) will take place from June 28 to 30.
The aim of the meeting is the presentation of research findings from around the world. The annual WIEM conferences allow for closer cooperation among Polish scholars, as well as for networking opportunities with researchers from abroad.   The main guests of this year’s conference are prof. James Heckman (University of Chicago), American economist and mathematician, specialist in econometrics and labour economics and Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences laurate, as well as prof. Nicholas Hanley (University of St Andrews), specialist in environmental economics, and author of many academic books in this field.  
Nobel laureate, Prof. James Heckman, presented the research results on social mobility...
involving data from the US and Denmark. The analysis focused on the relationship between educational attainment as well as income of children (during adulthood) and the income, wealth and education of the parents. The level of educational mobility is comparable in both countries, although the income mobility is much larger in Denmark. This difference is mainly the result of the current tax, pension and redistribution system, as well as of the lower wage inequality in Denmark.
