Title: Central Bank Account for All: Efficiency and Risk-Taking (joint with Cyril Monnet and Mariana Rojas-Breu)

Abstract: “ We analyze the effect that an interest-bearing central bank digital currency (CBDC), that competes with bank deposits as a medium of exchange, has on the banking sector. Monopolistic banks issue deposits to lend to productive investment projects. We show that CBDC leads to increased remuneration on bank deposits. CBDC promotes intermediation and increases bank profits for low to moderate interest rate levels. We characterize the optimal interest rate on CBDC and demonstrate that a higher rate leads to sub-optimal investment decisions and build-up of banking sector risk. Until investment efficiency is achieved, it is optimal for the central bank to offer the same remuneration on CBDC and reserves. If the CBDC rate is set higher than the optimal level, reserves become an important policy tool to crowd out sub-optimal investment and mitigate banking sector risk. ”

360 Lecture with Katy Chakrabortty

The Department of Economics is delighted to welcome Katy Chakrabortty as our next 360 Guest Lecture speaker for the 2021/22 academic year.

Campaigning to end poverty. What's inequality got to do with it?

Date: Monday 14 February 2022, 6.15-7.15pm
Location: MS Teams

Dr Christian Soegaard will introduce the speaker and chair the Q&A session at the end of the lecture

This event is for staff and students only and registration is required in order to attend. First year students who attend the lecture will be able to get PDM points.

About the Talk

For several years, Oxfam has made headlines around the world with its pronouncements that global economic inequality is out of control.

This year, Oxfam found that the Covid-19 pandemic had supercharged the trend, leading to the 10 richest men in the world doubling their wealth since the beginning of the pandemic, whilst Covid has pushed an extra 160 million people into poverty. This may feel unfair, but for a charity that wants to end poverty, why does it matter that some people are so rich? There is no fixed pie of wealth, so surely there is room for the super-rich to get richer and still have success stories at the bottom?

This lecture from Oxfam’s Head of Policy and Advocacy will outline why the billionaire boom is not something to celebrate, but is a symptom of an increasingly broken economics that it is making it harder to overcome poverty. It will talk about what needs to be done to reverse this trend, and discuss the role of campaigning, communications, evidence and advocacy in persuading the richest that they can’t have it all.

About the author - Katy Chakrabortty

Katy is Head of Policy and Advocacy at Oxfam GB. She leads the team focused on Oxfam's policy influence in the UK. She has been at Oxfam since 2009, and as well as political relations work she has played a major role in Oxfam's Even it Up campaign against extreme economic inequality.

Registration

Please complete the following form with your details as registration is mandatory. We will email you nearer the time with the link to join the event. Registration will close at 12 noon on the day.

Careers in Economics Webinar Series 2021-22

We hope that you take this opportunity to learn about further studies at Warwick, the skills that employers value in economics graduates and find out more about how to apply for the positions that they offer in their companies.

Title - Benedic, Domine, nos et haec tua dona: Northern Crusades, Institutions and Early Economic Development

Abstract: In this paper, I propose to measure the persistence of the institutions over the economic activities in a setting with varying institutional enforcement over time. Recent literature highlights the long-run interaction between the institutions, urban autonomy, and early economic development in Western Europe before the industrial revolution. However, the role of institutional enforcement by the ruler/lord is neglected, or the causality between the institutional environment and early economic development is missing. The empirical setting proposed in the presentation aims to study the interaction between the Northern Crusades between the 12th and the 16th centuries in the Baltic region and the spread of the town charts across the border of the Teutonic Order state. I intend to employ the polish immovable monuments database, made available by the National Institute of Cultural Heritage, as a proxy for urban development. I aim to use the varying institutional environment and the arguably exogenous expansion of the Teutonic Order to shed new insights on early economic development and, potentially, the reversal of the Order’s economic fortune in the Prussian region.
