July 2021: New VoxEU Column – Political economy in finance

By Thomas Lambert, Enrico Perotti and Magdalena Rola-Janicka

Political considerations have become important in finance research, with significant implications for policymaking. This column summarises new research presented at the CEPR conference on the Political Economy of Finance, including work on opaque investments in political influence, electoral impact of credit and regulation, the role of institutional complexity in shaping reforms and incentives of central bankers. The conference kickstarted the PolEconFin initiative aimed at providing a meeting point for researchers in this topical area.
