Conference on Corporate Finance and the Macroeconomy under COVID-19

Organized by the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Princeton’s Bendheim Center for Finance

August 14, 2020 |This conference will take place virtually on Zoom

The COVID crisis has highlighted the importance of understanding corporate financing issues in the large and small firm sector, and the role of monetary and fiscal policy in alleviating these issues and bettering macroeconomic outcomes.

We will hold a one-day conference on August 14 on recent theoretical and empirical research on this topic. A non-exhaustive list of topics that would be suitable for the conference include:

  • Studies of bankruptcy and restructuring issues for firms
  • Empirical studies of financial distress in large and small firms, both in the U.S. and internationally
  • Theoretical models that integrate corporate finance, monetary policy and macroeconomics.
  • Theoretical analyses of program designs for credit policies
  • Empirical evaluation of government credit policies, both in the U.S. and internationally

We will include 5 papers in the conference and run the conference online over Zoom.

The submission deadline to be considered for the conference is July 31. Submissions can be first drafts, but we require a complete paper to considered for the conference. Final versions of the papers will be due August 7.
