Ninth International Conference on

Financial Markets and Macroeconomic Performance

May 8 – 9, 2017

University of Frankfurt, Germany


The global financial and economic crisis in 2008/2009 has revealed the critical role played by the financial sector of an economy. In response, many policy makers and academic scholars have focused their attention on the link between banking, monetary policy, and macroeconomic outcome.

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:
• The financial sector in business cycle models
• Financial regulation and macroeconomic volatility
• Financial regulation and long-run growth
• Monetary policy and redistributionn

David Domeij (Stockholm School of Economics), Sydney Ludvigson (New York University), Monika Piazzesi (Stanford University), Vincenzo Quadrini (University of Southern California), Martin Schneider (Stanford University), and Harald Uhlig (University of Chicago) have already agreed to participate.
