Disclosure of outside activities

I spend most of my time doing my job at New York University's Stern School of Business: teaching research, and so on.

One aspect of my job is to give talks about my work at other universities and at conferences, most of which cover travel expenses and accomodation. On rare occasions, these and other activities generate payments beyond expenses, generally smaller than my wife would like. In the recent past, this has included:

  • Referee, Journal of Financial Economics, July 2013.
  • Discussant, Carnegie-Rochester-NYU, April 2013.
  • Consultant, Kansas City Fed, May 2011.
