Kai A. Konrad delivers Huang Da-Mundell Lecture

Prof. Dr. Kai A. Konrad, a director at the MPI for Tax Law and Public Finance, was honoured to deliver the prestigious Huang Da-Mundell Lecture at Renmin University of China on 25 September 2017.

His presentation “Escalation in dynamic conflict: On beliefs and selection” is related to a paper co-authored with Prof. Dr. Florian Morath, a professor at Goethe University Frankfurt and a research affiliate at the MPI for Tax Law and Public Finance.

Established in 2001 jointly by the School of Finance at Renmin University in Beijing and the Chinese Financial Policy Research Center (FRC) to bridge academic communication between China and the rest of the world, the Huang Da-Mundell Lecture Series is named after both the Nobel laureate in economics, Robert Mundell, and Da Huang, a financial economist from China, professor at the Renmin University of China, Honorary Director of the FRC and an Honorary Chairman of the Chinese Society for Finance and Banking.

The lecture series invites famous economists to present their cutting-edge research. Former presenters of the Huang Da-Mundell Lectures include leading academics from the field of economics, such as Jean-Jacques Laffont and Robert J. Barro, and winners of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics such as Michael Spence, Edmund S. Phelps and Robert J. Shiller.

While in Beijing, Kai A. Konrad also lectured at the Tsinghua School of Economics and Management.
