Econometrics Camp

Dear Korean Econometricians,

We are organizing an econometrics camp over the summer 2014, tentatively scheduled on Aug 8-9, 2014. The purpose of the camp is mainly to provide a platform to build up a working network among Korean econometricians, and to help Korean econometricians to learn about recent developments on some selected subjects in econometrics. We wish that all Korean econometricians working inside and outside Korea would consider participating. In particular, the camp will include mentoring sessions, so it would be particularly helpful for junior Korean econometricians to attend.

The main theme of this year camp is “Financial Econometrics”. The detailed plan for the camp is as follows:

Day 1: Joon Y Park and Hagen (Hwagyun) Kim will deliver key note speeches, which will set the theme and tone of the camp, in a lecture format. The key note speeches will be followed by four presentations of most important papers on the topic by invited participants.

Day 2: A few sessions for the presentations of contributed papers will take place. At least one of these sessions will be devoted to mentoring juniors by some established seniors. A senior attendant will be assigned to each of the papers contributed in the session(s) by junior participants, and the papers will be presented by the assigned seniors with subsequent discussions made by the contributing junior authors.

Those who want to present a paper, please send the final draft to Professor Kyungchul Song (kysong@mail.ubc.ca<mailto:kysong@mail.ubc.ca>) by April 30.

Korean Econometric Society provides meals during the camp during the camp and hotels for the night of Aug 8 to all the accepted attendants from Korea. KAEA will provide the accommodation on Aug 8 and meal expenses to the participating oversea KAEA econometricians. If you are not a member of KAEA, please contact Yongseok Shin at YSHIN@wustl.edu<mailto:YSHIN@wustl.edu>.

The exact venue and other details of the camp will be notified later.

All the best,

Changsik Kim, Joon Park, Sang-Soo Park, Kyungchul Song, Donggyu Sul and Yoon-Jae Whang.

Invitation to Joint Research with BOK

Invitation to joint research with Bank of Korea

Bank of Korea (BOK) is planning to do a joint-research about the indicators applied tothe decision on the level of Countercyclical Capital Buffer (CCB) or Sectoral Capital Requirement (SCR). As already known, BIS recommended credit-to-GDP gap as a coreindicator for the CCB. But it seems to us that credit-to-GDP can only explain the overallsystemic risk and is not suitable for capturing the cumulated sectoral systemic risk.

Therefore, we would like to invite members of KAEA to the joint-research project of developing a subsidiary indicators which are well suited to the more specific sectoral systemic risk such as the risks accumulated in the housing sector. For reference, Norges Bank is using the ratio of total credit to GDP, the ratio of house prices to household disposable income, commercial property prices, and the wholesale funding ratio of Norwegian credit institutions for the indicators of CCB.

If you are interested in engaging this research project, please contact Dr. Hoon Kim,head of macroprudential research team with e-mail address, kimhoon@bok.or.kr

[Summary]
∎ Research Topic (Preliminary) : Sectoral Financial Stability Index as subsidiary indicators to credit-to-GDP gap in the imposition of Countercyclical Capital Buffer (CCB)
∎ Department in charge : Macroprudential Research Team, Macroprudential Analysis Department, Bank of Korea
∎ Expected research period : 6 months to 12 months to complete
∎ Bank of Korea may provide- Research grant (up to 10,000 USD)- Travel expense including flight fare and accommodation (if needed)

conference synopsis

Title: “Job Creation and Business Investments as a Pathway for the Creative Economy”

Synopsis

Korea in the 21st century is faced with a growth slowdown, and seeking ways to revitalize its economy. Building a Creative Economy is one of main agendas for the new administration to revitalize the economy.   The “Creative Economy” roughly means an innovative economy that combines technologies across fields with a view to raising growth potential and generating quality jobs. However, technology alone is obviously not sufficient and the creative economy agenda encompasses a broader range of other reform issues. Though the idea is still evolving and the action plan is yet to be detailed, reforms are under way. Read More »
