Martin Čihák (PhD, 2002) has had two papers featured on the influential VoxEU.org website, which features cutting-edge research on a variety of European and global economic issues. “Measuring Financial Development” (co-authored with Asli Demirgüç-Kunt, Erik Feyen and, Ross Levine) was published on April 25, 2013 and “Measuring the clarity of central-bank communication” (co-authored with Aleš Bulíř and David-Jan Jansen) appears two weeks prior.
This is the not the first time that CERGE-EI alums have had work published on VoxEU.org. Jakub Matějů (MA, 2011) had an article on VoxEU in 2011, Martin Čihák and fellow alum Tigran Poghosyan (PhD, 2008) had an article on the site in 2010 and Jiří Podpiera (PhD, 2005) and Emil Stavrev (PhD, 2000) have had articles published as well. Previous articles by alumni have run up several thousand views and these most recent two articles by Martin have already exceed 3000 views in a matter of days. Congratulations to all of these alumni on getting their research out to the larger policy-making community!
