The New Macroeconomics of Aggregate Fluctuations and Stabilisation Policy

London
19-20 May, 2017

We are inviting submissions for a conference in stabilisation policy with heterogeneous agents. Until recently, much of macroeconomic analysis of stabilisation policy had built on the representative agent paradigm. A new literature is emerging which has taken a novel approach introducing concerns about household heterogeneity, inequality, redistributive effects and lack of insurance against idiosyncratic income fluctuations into models of macroeconomic stabilisation. These models allow one to bridge micro evidence on earnings, consumption and wealth dynamics and on household balance sheets with macroeconomic models that stress frictions in goods, labour and financial markets. This new generation of models has novel and richer implications for aggregate fluctuations and for the transmission of stabilisation policy to the real economy. This conference is aimed at advancing this new and exciting development in macroeconomics. We welcome both theoretical contributions and empirical investigations.
