The Bamberg Research Group on Behavioral Macroeconomics and the Macroeconomic Policy Institute (IMK) are pleased to host their first Behavioral Macroeconomics Workshop on the 15th and 16th of June 2018, on “New Approaches to Macro-Financial Instability and Inequality”. The workshop will 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 want to highlight new and alternative methods that can explain issues such as macro-financial instability and inequality, and that can be used for the design of economic policies to cope with these problems.
