InstEAD research staff and affiliates are presenting their work to economists from around the world at the Royal Economic Society (RES) Annual Conference at the University of Sussex on 26-28 March 2018.

InstEAD co-director Professor Sarah Brown will chair a session on Consumption and Saving and will present research on Financial Hardship and Saving Behaviour: Bayesian Analysis of British Panel Data co-authored with Professor Pulak Ghosh (Indian Institute of Management), Dr Bhuvanesh Pareek (Indian Institute of Management Indore) and Professor Karl Taylor (University of Sheffield). The findings suggest that saving on a regular basis reduces the likelihood of future financial problems and more specifically higher levels of mortgage debt are linked with an increased probability of financial hardship.

Professor Andy Dickerson will present research on The Changing Demand for Skills in the UK co-authored with Dr Damon Morris (University of Sheffield). This is research with the Centre for Vocational Educational Research and finds that the demand for analytical and interpersonal skills is strongly increasing whilst the returns to physical skills are negative.

Dr Anita Ratcliffe will present research on Identity conflict: A framework and empirical investigation co-authored with Dr Jolian McHardy (University of Sheffield) which shows that the cost of identity conflicts are significant, and of similar magnitude to that of experiencing discrimination in the labour market.

Research Associate Dr Cristina Sechel will present research on the Recognition of Research Excellence for Lecturers in Economics: Outputs and Gender co-authored with Dr Richard McManus (Canterbury Christ Church University) and Professor Karen Mumford (University of York).

Dr Ian Gregory-Smith will have work presented on ‘Say-on-Pay’, Binding Votes and the Vesting Ratios of Performance Equity with Dr Rodion Skovoroda (Nottingham University Business School), Professor Alistair Bruce (Nottingham University Business School) and Professor Trevor Buck (University of Glasgow).
