Third Behavioral Macroeconomics Workshop:

               "Heterogeneity and Expectations in Macroeconomics and Finance"


Following the success of the past workshops, the Bamberg Research Group on Behavioral Macroeconomics and the Macroeconomic Policy Institute (IMK) are pleased to host the Third Behavioral Macroeconomics Workshop from May 28 to May 3, 2020. The workshop will again take place at the University of Bamberg, Germany.

Confirmed Keynote speakers are:

Past years’ advances inside and outside the domain of economics have led to new perspectives for the understanding of macroeconomic and financial problems, in which non-linearity and heterogeneity are relevant characteristics of economic systems. These developments require departing from the full rationality assumption and reconsidering how economic agents interact, in primis how they coordinate and form expectations.  

The Third Behavioral Macroeconomics Workshop focuses on the role of heterogeneity and expectations in behavioral macroeconomics and macro-finance for better investigating economic developments, posing new questions, and offering new answers that can improve our understanding and help with the design of economic policies. The workshop aims to put together academics, policy practitioners, and prominent scholars to discuss the latest research and to foster the interchange of ideas from diverse methodological approaches.
