How does the news move markets?
How does the interaction between financial markets and the media affect real economic activity?
How do the incentives of people who create news affect market responses?
How do we best measure the information content of news articles?
Financial economists have long been interested in how markets incorporate information. In the last decade, the confluence of improved computational tools and data availability for text analysis have led to new research methods and many important insights into how markets respond to news and social media. But many questions remain unanswered.
Organized by Columbia Business School’s Program for Financial Studies, with its faculty leadership Harry Mamaysky, Paul Glasserman and Paul Tetlock around their current research, this major conference will bring together an unprecedented group of interdisciplinary leaders from across academia, business, government, and the media to explore new frontiers in the study of the dissemination of news and its influence on markets.
The Program for Financial Studies gratefully acknowledges Thomson Reuters for generously providing access to data sets that have enabled the research upon which the News and Finance initiative has been built.
