Conference Dinner Details

This event is funded by the ESRC World Economy & Finance Programme


This event provides a forum to discuss a range of theoretical and empirical issues regarding macroeconomic models for policy analysis in developed and developing countries. Several leading international economists in the field will be presenting their research, including: Michael Devereux, University of British Columbia; Andy Levin, Director, US Federal Reserve Board; Eric Swanson, Federal Reserve Bank, San Francisco; Martin Uribe, Duke University.

The aim of the workshop is to stimulate the debate on competing frameworks for policy analysis and their implementation. Some of the topics we will address include:

• Theoretical and empirical issues with canonical New Keynesian models.
• The interaction between imperfect credibility and stabilization problems under inflation targeting.
• Modeling of optimal policy with financing constraints
• Fiscal and monetary policy interaction.

The workshop will be held at the Centre for Economic Performance, London School of Economics, London, England on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 May 2008. Lunch and refreshments will be provided and there will be a conference dinner at a local restaurant on the Friday evening.
