Abstract

Economists have explicitly recognised the possibility that regulatory agencies may be captured by those whom they are supposed to regulate. However, the economics profession has been much more hesitant about recognising similar conflicts of interests that may exist in economics and finance research (i.e., academic capture). Thorsten Beck and Orkun Saka report on the related discussions and research recently presented at the second London Political Finance (POLFIN) workshop.
