Minnesota Workshop in Macroeconomic Theory

The Minnesota Workshop in Macroeconomic Theory is a workshop on dynamic macroeconomic theory sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the University of Minnesota and the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. It is held on the campus of the University of Minnesota every summer in late July/early August.

The 2014 conference will last for four days, from Tuesday July 29 through Friday, August 1. The schedule will be quite intense, with about 15 talks. There will also be ample time for informal discussion among the participants. We hope that all participants will stay the entire week.

We welcome papers in a variety of areas. Examples of topics of interest  include:

Asset Pricing from a General Equilibrium Perspective
Marina Mendes Tavares and Fatih Guvenen Credit and Fluctuations
Demographic Evolution and its Economic Determinants
Depressions and Crises
Dynamics of the Income Distribution
Dynamics of the Labor Market
Dynamics of Housing
International Trade and Macroeconomics
Monetary Theory/Policy and Welfare
Recursive Equilibria
Politics and Growth
Positive Theory of Policy
Search and Matching Theory and Applications
Technological Change and Growth
Theory of Organizations

We welcome papers in other areas as well. The final topics will be determined in large part by the interests of the participants. It is important to note that while the title of the Workshop includes "Theory," investigations of data that are guided by theory are more than welcome.

If you are interested in presenting a paper, please email the paper in pdf format to mnmacro2014@gmail.com by Wednesday, April 30. We will be able to pay travel and housing expenses for all speakers.

Please feel free to pass news of this conference on to other potentially interested people.
