Individual Risks and the Macroeconomy

We are currently calling for papers for a conference co-organised by the Department and CREST in the framework of the ANR Project Individual Risks and the Macroeconomy (IRMAC).
Date: June 16th and 17th, 2022
Location: Sciences Po Paris
The recent decade has seen a resurgence of interest in the interactions between the individual risks faced by households and firms (e.g., unemployment risk or wage risk for households, idiosyncratic productivity or demand shocks for firms) and the aggregate response of the economy to macroeconomic shocks, especially during recessions.
The conference aims to bring together researchers working on those issues. Some of the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Role of household or firm heterogeneity in the amplification of macroeconomic shocks
- Importance of agent heterogeneity in transmission of fiscal, monetary, and labor-market policies
- Optimal policy with heterogeneous households or firms
- Use of micro data (notably on European countries) to calibrate or estimate Heterogeneous-Agent models
Authors may submit extended abstracts, but full papers are preferred.
Please submit your paper at the following email address: email@example.com
DEADLINE for paper submission: FEBRUARY 15th, 2022.
Authors of accepted papers will be informed by Monday March 14th. Travel and local accommodation from academic institutions will be funded by the organisers.
