​​​The Growth Lab's Research Seminar series is a weekly seminar that brings together researchers from across the academic spectrum who share an interest in growth and development.

Speaker: Ruveyda Gozen, Ph.D. - London School of Economics. 

Location: Online only. Please register in advance.

Abstract: How do stronger property rights for disadvantaged groups affect innovation? Dr. Ruveyda Gozen investigates the impact of strengthened property rights for women on U.S. innovation by analyzing the Married Women’s Property Acts, which granted equal property rights to women starting in 1845 in New York State. She examines the universe of granted patents from 1790 until 1901, exploiting the staggered adoption of the laws over time across states.
