Download the presentation - 1.57 MB

The aim of the workshop is to discuss how mass media is interrelated to economic and political outcomes. We will focus on the following two topics:

  1. Media persuasion, i.e. how media content affects individual behavior (mostly empirical); and
  2. Media bias, i.e. what economic and political factors affect media content (mostly theoretical).
