In this format, one of the members of the group is in charge of guiding the discussion and present a
pre-selected unpublished paper (predominantly in economics, but we can be multidisciplinary). No slides (when
absolutely necessary, 3-5 max). It is required for the participants to
read the article beforehand (or at least try to).
- The presenter has 10 to 20 minutes to present the paper and to answer clarifying questions to the audience
- Then we open the discussion focusing on criticism and suggestions to improve the paper
- We go into the specifics, technical details, identification issues, but also more general things such as: how does this work
contribute to the literature, how does it compare to other papers, where should it be published?
- We meet for one hour and try to be civil
