Markets & Financial Exchange
Markets and market principles have a profound influence on human society. Maynooth University researchers examine the functioning and inter-relatedness that exists between financial, labour and goods markets in a national and international context.
Research in markets and financial exchange explores: the structure, and dynamic linkages that exist between international stock markets, and between global financial markets and the economic system, the conditions that promote trade and foreign direct investment between firms and across countries, the determinants and measurement of inequality in labour markets, the evaluation of labour market programmes, and the cultural dimensions of markets and market principles.
