Today I presented our most recent paper at the The Leverhulme Centre for Research on Globalisation and Economic Policy at the University of Nottingham (hence the lack of posts).
The Economics department at Nottingham has a large number of academics and researchers (and external fellows including yours truely) working in the broad area of "Economics of Globalisation" and an excellent working paper series the GEP research paper series.
They also hold a number of workshops and seminars as well as hosting visitors from around the world.
A full list of this year's seminars can be found here "GEP seminars".
Our paper was: "Multinationals, Foreign Ownership and the Environment: Firm Level Evidence for Argentina". This will hopefully appear on our research webpages soon "Globalisation and the Environment" and is part of a series of papers looking at the issue of whether multinationals are good or bad for the enviroment of developing countries.
The next event of note at the GEP centre is next week when Jim Markusen gives the Nottingham Lectures in International Economics.
