Brincks
Stephen Brincks

Dr. Brincks is interested in pursuing research in the areas of corporate finance, banking, real estate, asset pricing, and behavioral finance. One of his main research strengths is using an interdisciplinary approach that combines knowledge from multiple fields (such as psychology) to uncover new insights. In his paper, “Home is Where the Bias Is,” I find that homeowner reluctance to realize losses (psychological bias) slows price appreciation and reduces housing sales. Additional research plans include studying the impact of regulatory uncertainty on bank lending and corporate investment and analyzing how differences in corporate culture affect productivity and competitiveness.
