Research Agenda

In implementing the research agenda of CRIEFF, in terms of its declared aims and objectives, its activities will certainly include mainstream industrial organisation, enterprise and finance, and yet should go beyond their traditional boundaries, as this is often where the new developments will occur.

How this agenda has been pursued is well illustrated by the following interests (to name a few) of CRIEFF: R&D and technological diffusion, the organisational theory of the firm, the economics of the household, economics of healthcare, the environmental consequences of firms’ activities, micro-modelling of the firm for macroeconomic purposes, multinational firms, the economics of the single European market, marketisation and privatisation, voting and tax policy, pension reform, tax progressivity, income inequality, and deregulation.
