The financial crisis of 2007/8 was followed by the first contraction in the global economy since World War II: the Great Recession. This Recession not only lowered the average living standard, but, most likely, it also changed the shape of the income distribution. These effects are likely to differ by countries and societal groups.
A conference on Crises and the distribution was held in Berlin on September 29th and 30th, 2014. The conference is linked to the Ph.D. program on “Public economics and inequality,” which is arranged by the Hans-Böckler Foundation in collaboration with the Free University Berlin.
Keynote lectures were given by Anders Björklund (Swedish Institute for Social Research, Stockholm University) and by Martin Hellwig (Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods, Bonn University).
Deadline for submission: 4th July, 2014
