News & Finance Annual Conference
How does the news move markets? With geo-political, inflationary and economic risks, and prolific social media and media coverage influencing the capital markets, join us for a research-driven conference assessing questions such as:
- 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?
Organized by Columbia Business School’s Program for Financial Studies, with its faculty leadership Harry Mamaysky, Paul Glasserman and Paul Tetlock this major annual conference brings together an expert group of interdisciplinary leaders from across academia, finance, government, and the media to explore new frontiers in the study of the dissemination of news and its influence on markets.
