Political connections: evidence from insider trading around TARP

The Barcelona Graduate School of Economics is a pioneering initiative that brings together four academic units with established international reputations and a history of leadership in the field of Economics:
The joint efforts of our academic units have positioned the Barcelona GSE among the world's top research groups. Evidence of our research community's strength includes competitive research rankings (RePEc), the Severo Ochoa Excellence Accreditation, and the consolidation of the Barcelona GSE Summer Forum as the premier conference for top researchers.
Research Endowment and Barcelona GSE Research Professors
The Barcelona GSE Research Endowment exists to contribute to the attraction and retention of top academic talent of the academic units and increase the Barcelona GSE's critical mass of researchers. To that end, the endowment is dedicated exclusively to supporting the appointment of Barcelona GSE Research Professors.
