    DIW Seminar on Macroeconomics and Financial Markets Ambiguity Attitudes about investments: Evidence from the field

    Using an incentivized survey and a representative sample of investors, we elicit ambiguity attitudes toward a familiar company stock, a local stock index, a foreign stock index, and a crypto currency. We separately estimate ambiguity aversion (ambiguity preferences) and perceived ambiguity levels (perceptions about ambiguity), while controlling for unknown likelihood beliefs. We show that ambiguity aversion is highly correlated across different assets and can be summarized by a single underlying factor. By contrast, individuals’ perceived ambiguity levels differ depending on the type of asset and cannot be summarized by a single underlying factor. Perceived ambiguity is mitigated by financial literacy and education, while the preference component is correlated with risk aversion. Perceived ambiguity proves to be related to actual investment choices, validating our measure. Finally, our results imply that policies enhancing financial literacy and knowledge of financial markets can help stimulate equity market participation and reduce inequality, as these reduce peoples’ perceived levels of ambiguity about financial assets.

    Conference BCCP Conference and Policy Forum 2019 Regulatory Challenges in Digital Markets: the Rise of Corporate Power
    4th BCCP Conference

    This year’s conference focusses on the rise of corporate power with an emphasis on digital markets. A remarkable body of economic research has recently reported the global rise of markups across many markets and industries. The measurement of market power, the role of competition policy, and the potential need for regulatory intervention are core issues of the academic and policy discussion. These issues are particularly challenging in multi-sided digital platform industries with large players such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google, which are also under suspicion of increasing political power and influence. This conference brings together leading academics and policy makers to discuss the road ahead for improving institutions and markets to curb corporate power for the good of society.

    Presentations and discussions with
    Jonathan Baker (American University, Washington, D.C.)
    Tomaso Duso (DIW Berlin and Technische Universität Berlin)
    Jan Eeckhout (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona)
    Hans W. Friederiszick (E.CA Economics)
    Matthew Gentzkow (Stanford University)
    Stefan Hunt (UK Competition & Markets Authority, Chief Data and Digital Insights Officer)
    Helen Margetts (University of Oxford)
    Fiona Scott Morton (Yale University)
    Paul Nemitz (Principal Advisor in Directorate-General Justice and Consumers of the European Commission)
    Daniela Stockmann (Hertie School of Governance)

    Online registration is now open at this link. Updated information about the event is available at the BCCP Conference website. We look forward to welcoming you to the 4th BCCP Conference.
