Covid brought massive disruptions to the intricate web of global value chains setting off bottlenecks and inflation in its wake. The broader impact on inflation and the global economy is hotly debated. This event will feature a lecture by Hyun Song Shin, Economic Adviser and Head of Research at the Bank of International Settlements, who has been one of the influential voices in this debate. He has been at the forefront of using data on supply chains to better understand the role of supply disruptions following Covid and will discuss prospects for macroeconomic adjustments. Before he took up his current position in May 2014, he was the Hughes-Rogers Professor of Economics at Princeton University, having previously held appointments at Oxford University and the London School of Economics. He has been an intellectual leader in the fields of banking, international finance and monetary economics, topics on which he has published widely, both in leading academic and official publications.
This event is part of a series of events on the economic and financial applications of alternative data sponsored by Capital Fund Management (CFM) and Program for Economic Research (PER) at Columbia University’s Department of Economics. There will also be a panel discussion with Raphael Schoenle, Associate Professor of Economics at Brandeis University and Adam Rej, Director and Head of Macro Research at Capital Fund Management (CFM). The panel will be moderated by Jose Scheinkman, Charles and Lynn Zhang Professor of Economics at Columbia University.
