The goal of the US/EU Dialogue Series is to enhance transatlantic dialogue on contemporary issues at the nexus of business and public policy.The conference seeks to determine where United States (US) and European Union (EU) perspectives converge and diverge by convening US and EU scholars to present economic and management research relevant to the business and public policy arena.
The following scholars from the Center for Business and Public Policy will present:
·         Brad Jensen - “Global Trade in Services: Fear, Facts, and Offshoring”
·         Jeff Macher and John Mayo - “Demand in a Portfolio-Choice Environment: The Evolution of Telecommunications”
·         Jay Shambaugh - "Internal Devaluations"
Scholars from INSEAD will discuss:
·         Pushan Dutt, Ilian Mihov and Timothy van Zandt - “Does the WTO Matter for the Extensive and Intensive Margin of Trade?”
·         Amine Ouazad - “Foreclosures and Segregation”
·         Morten Bennedsen - “Corporate Governance and The Environment: Evidence From Clean Innovations”
Additional scholars include:
·         Nikos Vettas (Athens University) - “On the Dynamics of Technology Transfer”
·         Jean Philippe Bonardi (HEC Lausanne) - “Corporate Political Activity, Why and When Political Knowledge Matters”
In March 2010, Georgetown and INSEAD scholars met at INSEAD to discuss firm influence, taxation, trade in services, the role of credit supply in school segregation, banking regulation, the role of economic analysis on regulation, and competition in environmental labeling. Last April, scholars from ESADE, INSEAD and Georgetown gathered in Washington, D.C., to discuss contracting and governance, environmental regulatory policy, technology, trade and trust, and government inefficiencies.
