The Great Financial Crisis has profoundly shaken the way most economists and policymakers see economic fluctuations, macroeconomic policy and their impact for long-run growth. In this context, a deep rethinking of monetary, fiscal, and financial policy is needed. To this end, NCID's Research Workshop will bring together academic experts and policymakers to discuss today’s challenges for developing and emerging market economies: destabilizing financial fluctuations, protectionism waves, stagnating productivity, increasing debt and inequality, among others. Sessions will provide a forum for the discussion of cutting-edge research on theoretical and empirical macroeconomic issues that are relevant to emerging markets and developing economies.
Our Keynote Speaker, Prof. Martín Uribe, Economics Professor at Columbia University and a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, will inaugurate the event on May 17 with his presentation titled Multiple Equilibria in Open Economy Models with Collateral Constraints: Overborrowing Revisited.
On May 18, we have six sessions scheduled. Confirmed speakers are: Prof. Mirko Abbritti, Economics Professor at the University of Navarra; Mr. Javier Bianchi, Senior Economist at the Minneapolis Federal Reserve; Prof. Jesús Fernández-Villaverde, Economics Professor at the University of Pennsylvania; Prof. Pablo Guerron-Quintana, Economics Professor at Boston College; Ms. Camelia Minoiu, Senior Economist at the International Monetary Fund, and Mr. Jonathan D. Ostry, Deputy Research Director at the International Monetary Fund.
