3rd HenU / INFER Workshop on Applied Macroeconomics 2017
March 17th and 18th 2017
During the last years dynamic macroeconomics experienced a revolution. With central banks all over the world hitting the zero lower bound and resorting to quantitative easing, the workhorse models used in quantitative macro that were built around central banks who set the interest reate, became almost impossible to apply. Almost a decade after the beginning of the Great Recession, it remains a key challenge to the profession to understand macroeconomic dynamics in a time, where the nominal interest rate is close to zero, monetary policy is based on quantities, and growth is persistently depressed.
On March 17th and 18th 2017 the School of Economics of Henan University (HenU) and the International Network for Economic Research (INFER) will devote their third joint workshop on applied macroeconomics to those and related issues. All submissions on applied macroeconomics will be considered, but submissions on those issues are especially encouraged.
