Jones a Discussant at Beyster Symposium
Derek Jones, the Irma M. and Robert D. Morris Professor of Economics, recently attended the Beyster Symposium in La Jolla, Calif., where he was a discussant for a paper titled “Do Employee Share Owners Face Too Much Financial Risk?”
Presented in a session on risk and diversification, the paper was co-authored by researchers from Rutgers University, the IZA Institute of Labor Economics, and Western Connecticut State University.
The Beyster Symposium is a program of the Rutgers University School of Management and Labor Relations. According to its web page, “the purpose of the annual symposium is to study broad-based forms of financial participation in capital ownership and capital income” and “provides an opportunity for senior and emerging scholars, legal and policy experts to present research in progress and receive mutual mentoring and feedback.”
