Venue: BAFFI CAREFIN Centre, Bocconi University

Which are the effects in combining ideas from psychology and monetary economics? The aim of the workshop is to discuss how the new insights from behavioural economics can shape the demand and the supply of currency, considering both inside and outside money and including the recent debate on e-coin (central bank digital currencies) on the one side, and on bit-coin (private crypto currencies) on the other side.
