Public Economics Seminar: Public interest defense of cartels and corporate income tax reforms


All researchers and students are warmly invited to the Public Economics Seminar this Thursday between 12:30 and 13:50 in room 105 at IES. During this week's research seminar there will be two presentations. First, Lukáš Tóth (University of Amsterdam) will give a talk with a title "Public interest defense of cartels". Then, Petr Janský will discuss recent research assessing the impact of the corporate income tax reforms with the focus on European tax base shifts under a range of policy scenarios.


What is Public Economics Seminar?   Public Economics Seminar will take place every other Thursday at lunchtime (12:30-13:50) during the spring semester 2018 in room 105 at the Institute of Economic Studies. The organisers are Petr Janský, Sarah Godar, and Miroslav Palanský.   Public Economics Seminar aims to be an opportunity for researchers, students of economics and experts to meet like-minded people, to develop and strengthen research collaborations, support learning from each other and to discuss policy-relevant research in public economics and public finance. The research questions being answered should include the role of government, public expenditure, inequality, taxation and tax havens.   The participants should actively engage by presenting their current research, reviewing others’ work or contributing to a general discussion. Mostly there will be two speakers during every 80-minute seminar with up to 40 minutes for each: 15 minutes for a presenter, 5 minutes for a reviewer and up to 20 minutes for a discussion. Sometimes there will be only one speaker.   Officially, this is an informal seminar - there are neither official requirements nor official rewards. If you are interested, please come and give it a try! A light lunch will be served for all participants.
