VIRTUAL MUNICIPAL FINANCE WORKSHOP SPRING 2021
Welcome to the Virtual Municipal Finance Workshop! The purpose of this workshop is to bring together junior and seasoned academics to present and discuss research on contemporary issues in municipal finance, a fast-growing subfield of finance which tackles important issues for local governments and “main street” investors.
The schedule of presentations is provided below. Each workshop presentation will take place on Wednesday from 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT during the Spring 2021 semester. Presenters will be provided with 45 minutes to present their research, and audience members can ask questions at any time through the chat window or their microphone. The final 15 minutes of the hour is reserved for additional questions from the audience. A link to each paper can be found by clicking on the title of the paper.
