Conference on Intergenerational Mobility

clip_image002On Monday 30 November, I’m running a conference at ANU on ‘The Economics of Intergenerational Mobility’.

This is an area I’ve been interested in since 2007, when I wrote what I’m pretty sure was the first paper estimating the intergenerational earnings elasticity for Australia.

The six papers span domestic and international, theory and empirics, and various possible drivers of social mobility.

Since one of the goals of the conference is to foster more research on social mobility, registration is free for academics and full-time students. For everyone else, it’s a very reasonable $195 per person, or $165 if you have four or more people from the same agency (if you have relatives in your organisation, why not all come along?). There are two forms, so download the one that suits you:
