      Venice Summer Institute 2015: The Economics of Entrepreneurship: Bringing Entrepreneurship Back into Economics
    • Type: Venice Summer Institute
    • Topic: Since the writings of Marshall (1890) and Schumpeter (1921), entrepreneurial activities are universally considered a crucial ‘ingredient’ in promoting and sustaining economic growth. Under this notion, entrepreneurs are considered critical economic agents who turn ideas into valuable businesses. As the world economy becomes more globalised yet more agglomerated, fostering entrepreneurial talent has become ever more important: dense local clusters of entrepreneurship are the real powerhouses of modern economies, capable of leveraging local knowledge spillovers and agglomeration forces to produce the ‘Next Big Thing’ and endow it with global reach.

      Despite its crucial importance to economic policymaking and a deeper understanding of the functioning of economic activities, not enough is known about what makes an entrepreneur, what role entrepreneurs play in fostering agglomeration and urban economies, and what policies are needed to successfully breed and promote entrepreneurial success.

      Venice Summer Institute 2015: Rethinking the Need for a Fiscal Union in the Eurozone
    • Type: Venice Summer Institute
    • Topic: Many voices in academia and the policy arena call for a fiscal union to complement the current design of the Economic and Monetary Union in Europe. Concrete suggestions towards fiscal unification range from the mutualisation of public debt to setting up an area-wide tax-transfer system. However, there are also sceptical views about the need and/or the effectiveness of deeper fiscal integration in the Eurozone. A number of years after the onset of the financial and economic crisis in Europe, and the institutional changes in response to the crisis, the objective of this workshop is to rethink the current fiscal architecture and explore the pros and cons of potential steps towards deeper fiscal integration in the Eurozone.

      Venice Summer Institute 2015: New Developments in Global Sourcing

      Venice Summer Institute 2015: International Currency Exposure
    • Type: Venice Summer Institute
    • Topic: The foreign currency denomination of individual transactions often adds up to significant currency exposure at the country level and has important economic and policy implications.

      Venice Summer Institute 2015: The World Trade Organization and Economic Development
    • Type: Venice Summer Institute
    • Topic: The original intention behind the ‘Doha Round’ of the World Trade Organization (WTO) was to promote the integration of developing countries into the world trading system. The collapse of the round in 2008 led to pessimism over whether the pursuit of such a ‘development-based’ agenda is even possible. And yet a number of scholars have continued to explore the scope for progress to be made at the WTO on development-related issues. The aim of this workshop is to bring together people working on this topic to interact on the progress that has been made in the various areas being explored.

In the first part of the conference, we will discuss lessons learned from past episodes of over-borrowing and default. The second (and main) part will analyze what is wrong with the current system of managing sovereign debt. We will place a special focus on (mis-)measurement and improper accounting.
