2nd Research Conference of the CEPR Network on Macroeconomic Modelling and Model Comparison (MMCN)
Date: 19 January 2019
June 7-8, 2018, Stanford University
MMCN is a research network under the auspices of CEPR and forms part of the Macroeconomic Model Comparison Initiative (MMCI) by the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and the Institute for Monetary and Financial Stability (IMFS) at Goethe University Frankfurt.
Quantitative macroeconomic models play an important role in informing policy makers about the consequences of monetary, fiscal and macro-prudential policies. The Macroeconomic Modelling and Model Comparison Network (MMCN) aims to make progress in this area by promoting collaboration among interested researchers in academia and policy institutions. It provides a forum for presenting new models and model comparisons, as well as the solution and estimation methods underlying them, thereby enhancing opportunities for building on the work of others.
We are very happy to welcome speakers and presentations fostering discussion about the following topics:
- Modelling the financial sector and economic crises in structural macroeconomic models
- Comparative analysis of monetary, fiscal and macro-prudential policies
- Modelling structural and tax reforms in macroeconomic models
- Solution, estimation, simulation and forecasting with structural macroeconomic models
- Model comparison and robust policies
SPECIAL TOPIC 2018: EXPLAINING AND FORECASTING THE GREAT RECESSION AND ITS AFTERMATH WITH STRUCTURAL MODELS
