|24/05/2021||EABCN Training School: The Zero Lower Bound and Secular Stagnation, Online Seminar|
Organizers: Eleonora Granziera
We are pleased to announce details of the latest EABCN Training School; an online course entitled "The ZLB and Secular Stagnation". Professor Gauti Eggertsson will teach the course. It is primarily aimed at participants in the Euro Area Business Cycle Network but applications will also be considered from doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers and economists working in central banks and government institutions outside of the network, as well as commercial organisations (fees applicable for non-network organisations).
The class will cover basic theory of price and output determination in the New Keynesian models and the effect of monetary and fiscal policy. We will cover how the basic framework can explain not only the effect of monetary and fiscal policy under normal circumstances, but also conditions that give rise to hyperinflation and especially conditions giving rise to zero interest rate. The class will also cover theories of prolonged slumps, often termed theories of secular stagnation, and discuss the importance of heterogeneous agent models to understand the transmission of monetary and fiscal policy. The main reference is a new manuscript on monetary economics currently being written by Gauti Eggertsson.
How to apply:
The course will take place online in the afternoons for Europe:
Further information will be available to successful applicants. Candidates who have a CEPR profile should apply by submitting their CV online at https://portal.cepr.org/eabcn-training-school-ZLB-secular-stagnation-may-2021 by 6pm (UK time), Friday, 7 May 2021. If you do not currently have a CEPR profile, please create a new one here and then click on the registration link.
PhD students should also send a statement that specifies the ways participating in the school will be useful for their current research (max 300 words).
Participants from non-academic institutions where the employer is not a member of the EABCN network are charged a course fee of EUR 1000.

|Hosted By: IESE Business SchoolWith: Citi|
IESE Business School, Citi, and The Centre for Economic Policy Research cordially invite you to the presentation of the third report on the future of banking, a joint IESE–Citi initiative that was launched in October 2018.
This year's report, Resilience of the financial system to natural disasters, was prepared by four leading international scholars in banking and finance led by Prof. Xavier Vives and will be published by CEPR in London. The report examines in what way climate and natural disaster risk is different from other more familiar forms of financial and economic risk, and how banks, asset managers and central banks can grapple with climate change and natural disasters. COVID-19 provides a test case on how to manage both ex ante and ex post disaster risk.
