Activities


Since its creation in 2006, CRETA has ran a seminar series with external and internal talks on economic theory and applications.

We have also co-organized the XVI European Workshop on General Equilibrium; hosted an annual lecture in Economic Theory; co-organised one-day workshops jointly with the Department of Economics at the University of Birmingham; and hosted an annual Summer School in Economic Theory and its applications.

    CRETA Lunchtime Seminar - Willemien Kets (Northwestern)

    1:00pm - 2:00pm, S2.79

    Willemien Kets (Northwestern) will be presenting as part of the CRETA Seminar series "Robust Multiplicity with a Grain of Naivete"; the paper can be found here: http://wkets.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/RobustMultiplicity_2016-0908.pdf.

    The abstract is as follows:

    Rationalizability is a central concept in game theory. Since there may be many rationalizable strategies, applications commonly use refi
    nements to obtain sharp predictions. In an important paper, Weinstein and Yildiz (2007) show that none of these refi
    nements is robust to perturbations of high-order beliefs. We show that robust refi
    nements do exist if we relax the assumption that all players are unlimited in their reasoning ability. In particular, for a class of models, every strict Bayesian-Nash equilibrium is robust. A researcher interested in making sharp predictions can thus use intuitive principles or models of players' reasoning to select among the strict equilibria of the game, and these predictions will be robust.

    "Understanding Attitude Polarization"

    Abstract: Numerous experiments have demonstrated the possibility of attitude polarization. For instance, Lord, Ross & Leper (1979) found that death penalty advocates became more convinced of the deterrent effect of the death penalty while opponents became more convinced of the lack of a deterrent effect, after being presented with the same studies. However, there is an unclear understanding of just what the implications of such findings are. We argue that not only is attitude polarization consistent with an unbiased evaluation of evidence, it is even to be expected under many circumstances. We also undertake a critical re-examination of several well-known papers.

    Media and new technologies in the Brexit referendum

    2:00pm - 8:00pm, Scarman Conference Centre, University of Warwick

    This event is by invitation only

    The media and the use of new communication technologies were a key factor in debate around the Brexit referendum. The link between media, information and political attitudes has been widely explored in the social sciences. Nevertheless, knowledge trends remain restricted to specific domains such as political economy, political sciences, and communication & media studies. The workshop organised by the Department of Economics and Warwick Policy Lab (WPL) seeks to narrow this gap by bringing together academics from different backgrounds to discuss the role the media and the provision of information about the EU to the general public, as well as relations between the UK and the EU in the run-up of the Brexit referendum. The workshop will be followed by an open lecture about the UK-EU Relations under Theresa May's Government.

    Unlisted in America

    Professor Simon Jackman, Stanford Professor of Political Science, co-Director of the Stanford Centre for American Democracy and one of the principal investigators of the American National Election Studies

    Interest in the forthcoming American presidential election is growing. In a timely visit to Warwick, Professor Jackman will talk about the work he is undertaking with Brad Spahn – abstract below:

    Campaigns, parties, interest groups, pollsters and political scientists increasingly rely on voter registration lists and consumer files to identify targets for registration, persuasion and mobilization, and as sampling frames for surveys. However, a sizable proportion of the U.S. citizen population does not appear on these lists, making them invisible to list-based campaigns and research.

    How large is the unlisted population? Are their preferences ignorable? What political consequences follow from a list-based view of the polity?

    We address these questions after matching respondents to the face-to-face component of the 2012 American National Election Study (using an address-based sampling design) to voter and consumer files. We tests for differences on hundreds of variables in the ANES survey between listed and unlisted populations, limiting Type-1 errors via control of the False Discovery Rate.

    At least 11% of the U.S. adult citizenry is unlisted. 1 in 5 Blacks and (citizen) Hispanics are unlisted, but just 8% of Whites. The unlisted earn less income and are less likely to have health insurance or own their own home than the listed population. The unlisted have markedly lower levels of political engagement than the listed and report close to no contact with candidates and campaigns whatsoever.

    Yet, the unlisted have coherent policy preferences that tend to the left of listed respondents. Unlisted ANES respondents reported favoring Obama over Romney 73-27 and just 14% identify as Republicans. The exclusion of the unlisted has important practical and normative implications for political representation, measures of public opinion, election outcomes and public policy.

    View more information on Professor Jackman and his research.

    The event is open to all staff and graduate students so please come along if this is of interest to you.

    12:00pm - 1:00pm, S2.79

    Colleagues from the Department for Work and Pensions's (DWP) Labour Market Strategy Team will be leading the workshop. The issues they will cover will include:

    • the future of work and trends driving changes in this area
    • prevalence of low productivity work
    • increasing diversity in the workforce
    • job matching and labour market information

    They will highlight, in particular, the “burning issues” for Government and DWP and which, therefore, might provide ideas for impactful and interesting research questions.

    The DWP team will also remain in the Department for a few hours in the afternoon for the opportunity to arrange some meetings with them.
