2015 Annual Conference on Macroeconomics Across Time and Space

Friday, October 30
Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and the NBER

The 2015 annual meeting of the Macroeconomics Across Time and Space working group will be held at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia on October 30, 2015. The aim of the group is to bring together the large number of researchers in aggregate economics who are using modern dynamic theory to investigate substantive historical questions. Research presented at past meetings covered a very broad range of topics, including great depressions; industrial revolutions; the diffusion of new technologies; secular shifts in hours worked and leisure; long-run trends in marriage, women’s labor supply, and fertility; the connection between the formation and dissolution of institutions and the economy; the rise in urbanization; trends in international trade and capital flows; the growth and location of business; political economy and sovereign debt; and the evolution of finance and its role in economic development. Invitation only.
