The fourth meeting encouraged papers about "Distributive impacts of privatization and deregulation on social exclusion related to race and ethnicity".
Proposed research topics included: "What is the main impact of specific deregulation/privatization policies on consumer prices?", "What is the impact of economic inefficiency?", "Is it possible to identify the impact on the wage structure?", "How has the wage structure affected the consumption patterns throughout the income distribution?", "Can winners and losers be easily identified? If so, is there an efficient and feasible way to compensate the losers?" and "Is there any way to introduce compensating schemes in the design of these policies on an ex-ante basis?"
