WEHIA 2017 - 22nd Annual Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents June 12-14, 2017, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milan
The Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents (WEHIA) is the annual conference of the Society for Economic Studies with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents. WEHIA 2017 represents a unique opportunity to present discuss the latest research on various aspects of the economy as a complex system made up of heterogeneous interacting agents. Research from different domains – economics, psychology, sociology, computer sciences, engineering, physics – can prove useful in developing new insightful approaches to key issues such as the origin, development and mitigation of financial crises, unemployment and poverty, income and wealth inequality and many others.
- Agent Based Models (ABMs): theory and computation, calibration and estimation
- Macroeconomic ABMs: emergence of financially driven business fluctuations and crises, growth and technical change,sustainable development and climate change
- DSGE models with heterogeneous agents
- Economic and financial networks
- Econophysics: application of statistical physics methods and percolation theory to economic issues
- Experimental economics
- Bounded rationality and learning

Workshop: Economics Of Taxation "Inequality in a Globalized World: A Challenge For Taxation", Barcelona, 13-14 June 2017
Rising levels of income and wealth inequality are a challenge for tax design. At the same time, greater mobility of capital, but also of individuals, undermines the capacity of the public sector to collect taxes. Inequality and globalization reinforce each other, which inevitably calls for the adoption of a broader approach to tax design, including tax enforcement policies. In this regard, globalization might require further efforts between countries to harmonize statutory tax parameters or to fight the negative effects of avoidance practices like physical mobility and profit shifting by multinationals, among others. Needless to say, though, there is still room for the analysis of public policies within a country, for example, regarding the design and level of unemployment benefits, the pros and cons of regional tax decentralization, or the relevance and effects of tax avoidance and evasion practices, among others.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together scholars currently working on these topics either from an analytical or from an empirical perspective. The workshop will run for 1.5 days and will include 12 papers.
Topics of interest:
Evaluation of tax reforms; Optimal taxation; Profit Shifting; Tax competition; Corporate income taxation; Wealth Taxation; Behavioural models of taxation; Tax enforcement; Tax compliance; Tax harmonization; Tax Heavens; Unemployment Benefits
