WORKSHOP ON ACCOUNTING AND ECONOMICS

SEGOVIA  (IE University), SPAIN, JUNE 7-8, 2012.

The purpose of this workshop is to promote the application of economic analysis in accounting research. Following the great success of ten previous workshops in a row, this workshop again offers a forum to thoroughly discuss recent research using this methodology.

Economic analysis is an important research tool to structure the research process and derive powerful insights into accounting procedures and institutions. It has been successfully used to analyse a wide variety of issues that are related to information asymmetry and potential conflicts of interests between involved people and groups of people. The models provide convenient structures to analyse financial accounting, managerial accounting, auditing, and corporate governance themes.

Participants are invited to present their own work in the field, to provide a formal discussion of papers presented by other participants, or to attend presentations and participate in the discussions. The benefit of participation is to present and get feedback to own research, to be on the forefront of the research, and to discuss issues related to economic analysis.

The Workshop will take place in at the IE Segovia Campus, Santa Cruz la Real Cardenal Zúñiga 12, 40003 Segovia, Spain

Fernando Fernández

Professor Fernandez joined IE Business School as Professor of Economics in September 2009. His professional development, which reflects his personal interests, has led him to explore all the different Economics’ fields. He started as a scholar fully dedicated to teaching and research; afterwards he worked in international economic policy at the IMF, in the banking arena at Santander Group, in international consulting and as Rector of private universities. Within all these fields Fernando has kept a constant premise: his concern for economic and social development and for acting with the highest scientific and professional rigor in the formulation of economic policies, financial activities or business strategies. Dr. Fernandez conceives Economics as a science in the service of freedom and human progress. As a science, Economics requires empirical contrast, analytical rigor and clarity of exposition. As a welfare engine, it requires the participation of economists in public debates, in shaping public opinion. 

His research started in the field of Labor Economics, where he focused in the determinants of Female labor participation, investment in human capital and wage determination. He moved on afterward to monetary and international issues such as the inflationary consequences of indexation mechanisms, liberalization of capital movements, privatization policies, the relationship between exchange rate and monetary policies, efficiency and regulation of the international financial system, competition policy and the single market or education reform. Two additional lines of work have been the analysis of current economic developments and the internationalization of Spanish companies – its causes, consequences and strategies-.

His current professional interests focus on international economic developments, financial sector reform, including international regulation and supervision, the quality of economic regulation and liberalization policies.
