We start up in less than two weeks, on January 20 at 4 pm.
Our first two papers, by Brigitte Madrian of the Harvard Kennedy School and David Kamin of NYU are now available through our website. Madrian's paper, "Does Front-Loading Taxation Increase Savings? Evidence from Roth 401(k) Introductions," is available here. Kamin's paper, In Good Times and Bad: Designing Legislation That Responds to Fiscal Uncertainty, is available here.
Both should be good sessions and, as we like to do from one week to the next in the colloquium, on wholly different topics.
Both will be followed small-group dinners. Interested attendees can sign up in advance, and can also get on the regular weekly mailing list for the papers, by contacting me off-line.
