Financial Markets and Macroeconomic Performance

May 7 - 8, 2018

University of Frankfurt, Germany


The global financial and economic crisis in 2008/2009 has shown the critical importance of the financial sector for macroeconomic activity. In response, many policy makers and academic scholars have focused their attention on the link between financial markets and the real economy.

Against this backdrop, the Center for Economic Policy (CEPR), the German Science Foundation (DFG), and the Center for Sustainable Architecture for Finance in Europe (SAFE) are organizing a joint conference on “Financial Markets and Macroeconomic Performance”.

Topics of interest include among others:
• Macroeconomic Stabilization Policy
• Housing and the Macroeconomy
• Monetary Policy and Banking

The following researchers have already made a commitment to present their work at the conference: Dean Corbae (University of Madison-Wisconsin), Ester Faia (University of Frankfurt), Kurt Mitman (IIES), Emanuel Moench (Deutsche Bundesbank), Xavier Ragot (Sciences Po), Aysegul Sahin (Federal Reserve Bank), Harald Uhlig (University of Chicago).
