Introduction | Programme (50 KB) Registration form (27 KB)
The Bank of England and LSE last year organised their first joint conference on Macroeconomics. Since then the Centre for Macroeconomics has been launched, and we will be holding the second on 9-10 December 2013 at the Bank of England in London on the following topic:
Understanding low growth
Western economies have now suffered from five years of stagnation, from which they may now be emerging. Was this just another recession, albeit unusually severe, or was it characterised by self-sustaining low-level equilibria or traps? Our conference considers this question.
The keynote speakers are Paul Beaudry (UBC), Roger Farmer (UCLA) and Jaume Ventura (CREI and Universitat Pompeu Fabra). A programme with confirmed speakers is attached.
There is no conference fee. Applications to attend are invited, although numbers will be limited. To register an interest in attending please send a completed Registration form (27 KB) to Diana.Campbell@bankofengland.co.uk and Carol.Kitchener@bankofengland.co.uk.
