November 2018 — In the paper, “Detecting Urban Markets with Satellite Imagery,” Amit Khandelwal, Director of the Jerome A. Chazen Institute for Global Business, and his co-authors explore the emergence of satellite imagery as an increasingly valuable source for defining urban markets based on economic activity.
October 2018 — In the paper, “Re-Examining the Effects of Trading with China on Local Labor Markets: A Supply Chain Perspective,” Shang-Jin Wei, Chazen Senior Scholar at Columbia Business School, and his co-authors examine the direct and indirect effects of trading with China — and find that the net effect is not only positive for U.S. job growth, but also wage growth.
October 2018 — In “The Spread of Deposit Insurance and the Global Rise in Bank Asset Risk Since the 1970s,” Charles Calomiris, Chazen Senior Scholar at Columbia Business School, and his co-author track the expansion of deposit insurance generosity — and show that its steady rise has increased asset risk in banking systems by freeing banks from the constraints of market discipline.
September 2018 — In “Money, Sovereignty, and Optimal Currency Areas,” Patrick Bolton, Chazen Senior Scholar at Columbia Business School, and his co-author examine the costs of joining a monetary union and propose a pathway forward that would help member countries like those in the European Union avoid debt defaults.
