CAFE is the new USC Dornsife Research Center for Applied Financial Economics. CAFE aims to promote a unified and rigorous interdisciplinary approach to research in finance that cuts across mathematical finance, econometrics and international macroeconomics. It encourages frontier and applied research and facilitates discussion and dissemination of research by organizing seminars and workshops. The new Center will be focusing on empirical finance with special emphasis on international macroeconomic financial issues such as global economy interactions, financial crisis, contagion, market and credit risk diversification, and financial forecasting in the presence of structural breaks. CAFE Research Paper Series aims at promoting high-quality research. The Series features contributions both by CAFE Research Fellows and by a network of external researchers.
