Event dates: August 8– 11th, 2017
Director: Philippe Aghion, Harvard University

Organizers: Balkanski-Panitza Institute for Advanced Study (BPIAS) and AUBG Business Club

The 2017 Summer School in Economy speakers will cover a broad range of topics related to the central theme, with particular emphasis on recent developments and future trends. Stefanie Stancheva will discuss current topics in tax policy, including income and corporate taxation. Julian Kolev will cover technology transfer and its impact on entrepreneurial ventures, as well as the role of transfer pricing in the market for intellectual property.Philippe Aghion will explore trends in invention and patenting using individual-level data from Finland, and will also cover the most important policy instruments for promoting entrepreneurship and broader economic development. These topics have attracted increasing attention in recent years as international trade has expanded away from final goods from manufacturing industries, and into intermediate goods, services, and intellectual property. In an increasingly-connected global market, our speakers will provide insight into how choices in tax and trade policy can lead to a more dynamic and internationally competitive economy.
