In addition to the live presentations above, 1,428 papers from scholars representing every region of the world have been accepted for presentation. In order to accommodate multiple time zones and the complexity of organizing the presentation of 1,428 papers, the organizers decided that papers will be pre-recorded in sessions of four with live scheduled Q&A during the week. Once recorded, sessions will be available on the web site in a password-protected resource library to be accessed throughout the week.

We are very excited about this format because it allows all presenters to work around time zones and potential technical glitches to present their work while still interacting with and receiving feedback from colleagues.

At the same time, several unique software features will be available throughout the meeting including live networking rooms, chat functions, virtual booths, leaderboards tracking presentation visits and daily participation in the Congress, among other features. The Society will also present live its Frisch Medal and other awards. Finally, while we cannot visit Bocconi University and Milan in person, Bocconi University’s beautiful buildings, surrounding city and hospitality will be available virtually during the full Congress.

We have set registration fees for presenters and non-presenter attendees at rates designed to cover the costs of the software and staffing. We hope all of you will register as soon as possible (and no later than June 7 to be included in the program) and encourage your colleagues to register too at the $10 non-presenter rate.

Registration Dates and Fees:
Registration opens: May 19, 2020
Presenter registration deadline: Sunday June 7, 2020
Non-presenter registration deadline: Friday August 7, 2020

Non-Presenter Registration Fee, all categories: $10

While the presenting author must pay the presenter registration fee by the deadline, co-authors wishing to register may pay the non-presenter fee and follow that deadline.

Countries by income category are defined by the World Bank, here (once in list, scroll down for country-by-income lists). Please note that the criterion for reduced fee is not nationality but country of work so that a national of Ukraine or Turkey, for example, working in North America is not eligible.

Students: A ‘student’ is defined as somebody registered in an academic program at the time of registration. If you are registering as a student, please send a scanned copy of your student ID or some similar verification to Charles.cai@econometricsociety.org during the registration process. Failure to provide this documentation could result in your registration being delayed or withdrawn.

Novo livro com Fernando Meneguin: “Lei de Liberdade Econômica e reflexos no Direito Regulatório: a análise de impacto regulatório”

Fernando Meneguin contribuiu com o capítulo “Lei de Liberdade Econômica e reflexos no Direito Regulatório: a análise de impacto regulatório” para o livro “Lei da Liberdade Econômica e o ordenamento jurídico brasileiro”, organizado pela professora Amanda Flávio de Oliveira (UnB) com prefácio de Gustavo H. B. Franco e Evandro Buccini.

Para adquirir o livro, consulte a Editora D’Plácido: http://www.editoradplacido.com.br

Descrição (extraída do site da Editora D’Plácido):

A Lei de Liberdade Econômica, Lei n. 13.874, de 2019, o assunto desse volume, foi talvez o produto mais puro e característico de uma certa primavera que teve lugar no ano de 2018. Os historiadores lembrarão das eleições de 2018, aquelas nas quais as ideias liberais, historicamente minoritárias no Brasil, habitualmente desdenhadas como “ideias fora do lugar”, para usar a expressão consagrada de Roberto Schwarz, e portanto consideradas mesmo meio estrangeiras para o gosto local, subitamente se tornaram dominantes e populares.
(…)
Pouco importa discutir se a LLE é o primeiro ou o segundo passo nessa direção, o fato importante é que o país caminha nessa direção. Os aplausos são super merecidos a todos que participaram desse esforço, vários dos quais são autores de textos que se seguem, sendo certo que todos somos torcedores.

New policy brief by Karina Bugarin: “Crisis Control: The Use of Simulations for Policy Decision-Making” in the Policy Center for the New South

Karina Bugarin (Secretariat for Economic Development, State of São Paulo, Brazil) has published the policy brief “Crisis Control: The Use of Simulations for Policy Decision-Making” in the Policy Center for the New South.

Policy brief PB 20-38, coauthored with Eduardo A. Haddad (FEA/USP) “explores the use of simulations in policy decision- making in the Brazilian State of São Paulo in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic” and highlights the fundamental “need for timely decision-making and the role evidence plays in guiding high-level decision-makers amidst a crisis”.

Please read the executive summary below and the entire policy brief here.

https://www.policycenter.ma/publications/crisis-control-use-simulations-policy-decisionmaking

Executive Summary

In face of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, use of evidence may be key to timely and precise decision-making.This policy brief explores the use of simulations in policy decision- making in the Brazilian State of São Paulo in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. We draw briefly on the literature on evidence-based public policy to highlight the exacerbated need for timely decision-making and the role evidence plays in guiding high-level decision- makers amidst a crisis. We present examples of simulations that can substantiate top- level decision making, such as the assessment of the potential daily sectoral and regional economic costs of control strategies for mitigating the effects of COVID-19. Finally, the essential contextual elements of governance for informational use are provided as a set of recommended tools for policymakers.

Novos papers por Fernando Meneguin no JOTA e no ConJur: Moratória e serviços essenciais; segurança jurídica para gestores municipais

Fernando Meneguin (IDP e Senado) publicou recentemente dois artigos com importantes reflexões sobre questões suscitadas pelo pandemia do novo coronavírus.

O artigo “Moratória e serviços essenciais: medida bem-intencionada com efeitos indesejáveis”, em coautoria com Amanda Flávio de Oliveira (UnB), publicado no JOTA chama a atenção para a importância de tomadas de decisões a partir de “um exercício sóbrio de busca de solução racional e baseado em evidências científicas”.

No que diz respeito à moratória, ou ainda, “às inúmeras proposições legislativas, originárias dos três níveis da federação, em que se busca instituir uma prorrogação legal do prazo concedido pelo credor a seu devedor para o pagamento de uma dívida, alterando, nesse ponto, os termos do contrato originalmente pactuado”, chama a atenção para a distância que pode existir entre boas intenções e respectivos resultados.

O artigo enfatiza a importância da Teoria de Desenhos de Mecanismos, que estabelece essa ligação entre objetivos e resultados partindo do fato de que os agentes reagem a incentivos.

Moratória e serviços essenciais: medida bem-intencionada com efeitos indesejáveis

O artigo “A salvaguarda da segurança jurídica para os gestores municipais”, em coautoria com Márcio Macedo Conrado, publicado no ConJur, analisa a realidade do gestor municipal em ambiente de pandemia em que é levado a tomar uma série de decisões excepcionais: “Os gestores, dentro desse cenário, estão sendo levados a readequar, suspender ou rescindir contratos de várias espécies (artigos 65, inciso II, “d”, e 78, incisos XII a XVII, da Lei 8.666), redirecionar recursos para o combate ao vírus e determinar novas contratações, existindo sempre o receio de como seus atos serão entendidos pelos órgãos de controle e fiscalização, principalmente quando estão sendo disparadas várias recomendações do Ministério Público Estadual, do Ministério Público Federal e do Ministério Público do Trabalho.”

Diante desse contexto inesperado, o artigo orienta quanto às cautelas que devem ser seguidas, bem como quanto à legislação existente que apoia a adoção de medidas inovadoras para lidar com a crise.

New paper by Rodrigo Schneider: “Political determinants of investment in water and sanitation: Evidence from Brazilian elections” in Economic Letters

Rodrigo Schneider (Skidmore College and EPRG) has published the paper: “Political determinants of investment in water and sanitation: Evidence from Brazilian elections” in Economic Letters.

The paper, coauthored with Evan Plous Kresch shows that “mayors of municipalities with self-run water and sanitation companies aligned with the state governor significantly decreased investment in their WS systems compared to unaligned mayors”.

Please check the entire paper here. Please find the abstract below:

This paper studies the extent to which political determinants play a role in the investment decisions for water and sanitation (WS) services. We focus on the political alignment between local and state officials using the outcomes of close mayoral elections in Brazil. We find that mayors of municipalities with self-run WS companies aligned with the state governor significantly decreased investment in their WS systems compared to unaligned mayors, providing evidence that politics plays a role in the running of public utilities.
