Second Behavioral Macroeconomics Workshop:

„Heterogeneity and Expectations in Macroeconomics and Finance’’


Following the success of last year’s workshop, the Bamberg Research Group on Behavioral Macroeconomics and the Macroeconomic Policy Institute (IMK) are pleased to host their Second Behavioral Macroeconomics Workshop on the 14th and 15th of June 2019. The workshop will again take place at the University of Bamberg, Germany.

Confirmed Keynote speakers are:

Traditional methods and theoretical frameworks, such as DSGE models with a representative agent with fully rational expectations, have been found unable to explain recent economic developments in a satisfactory manner.  In this workshop we focus on new and alternative methods that can better explain macroeconomic and financial problems and help with the design of economic policies. In particular, we want to highlight the role of heterogeneity and expectations in macroeconomics and finance.
