Florence - EUI

Professor Marc J. Melitz (Harvard University)  will survey the newer empirical literature based on firm-level studies of trade, and develop the analytical framework for general equilibrium models of trade with heterogeneous producers. The lectures will then cover applications (both theoretical and empirical) of these models to different subfields of international economics.

Deadline: June 03, 2016
24/06/2016 to 25/06/2016

The financial crisis and the subsequent economic recovery were associated with spectacular price movements in a number asset markets. Understanding these fluctuations and their interactions with the macro economy remains challenging. The conference seeks to bring together innovative theoretical and empirical work advancing our knowledge on asset price behaviour.

In many European economies, the recovery following the financial crisis has proven either sluggish or non-existent. Many countries suffer from persistently high level of unemployment, coupled with sluggish credit dynamics and stretched fiscal budgets. These outcomes put pressure on policymakers to step up the growth potential of their economies, so as to absorb the slack in labour markets and to stabilize debt dynamics.

The conference seeks to bring together academics entertaining different views about the likely sources and remedies to the European situation.

Gauti Eggertsson (Brown University), Bob Hall (Stanford University) and Alp Simpsek (MIT) have confirmed their participation.

    11/06/2015 to 12/06/2015

    The recent turbulent times have revived the interest in business cycle analysis, forecasting and methods to assess the effects of economic policies. This, in turn, has generated the development of refined or totally new econometric methods, in particular based on Bayesian techniques. The conference will cover a broad range of econometric themes with emphasis on methodological, theoretical and empirical aspects and their relevance for economic policy making.

    Fabio Canova (EUI), Herman van Dijk (Erasmus University), Jesus Fernandez-Villaverde (University of Pennsylvania), Alejandro Justiniano (Chicago FED) and Hashem Pesaran (University of Southern California and University of Cambridge) have confirmed their participation.
