It covers areas such as organisational economics, personnel economics, management and productivity, incentives and contracts, bounded rationality, and behavioral economics.

The Economics of Entrepreneurship Workshop brings together researchers interested in studying entrepreneurship. We welcome submissions related to incentives promoting entrepreneurship, relevant program evaluations, entrepreneurship and institutions, financing entrepreneurship (venture capital/business angels), experimentation and entrepreneurship, job creation and entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship in the theory of the firm, and entrepreneurship from an industrial organisation perspective.

For both areas, we welcome theory, empirics, and experiments.

Municipal Art Gallery
Europe Square
Larnaca, Cyprus

One can find the Municipal Art Gallery in the five stone-built former customs storages placed in front of the Europe Square at Larnaca. The building attached to the storages and being a piece of fundamental architecture turned out to be ideal for the allocation of the Historical Archives Museum. The customs storages were in use from 1882 until 1973. In 1973 as a result of the creation the modern port of Larnaca, big storages had been built and all the services, including the customs offices and the port administration moved to new the premises. The two-storey building up to its renovation was used as the Larnaca Officer’s Club. The project was awarded in 1995 with the Europa Nostra award for the "quality it offers to the cultural life of the citizens".

13/09/2018 Housing, Credit and Heterogeneity: New Challenges for Stabilisation Policies, Stockholm
Hosted By: Sveriges RiksbankWith: Federal Reserve Bank of St Louis,IIES, Stockholm University,Ragnar Sderbergs Stiftelse
Organizers: Daria Finocchiaro, Carlos Garriga, Kurt Mitman, Kathrin Schlafmann and Karl Walentin
Sveriges Riksbank, in collaboration with the IIES, St. Louis Federal Reserve, and Ragnar Söderbergs Stiftelse will host a conference on theoretical and empirical research regarding "Housing, Credit and Heterogeneity: New Challenges for Stabilisation Policies" on September 13-14, 2018.

The recent global financial crisis and subsequent anemic recovery in the Euro area and United States has brought to light the importance of housing and credit markets for the macroeconomy. It has also revealed seemingly important shortcomings of the prevailing paradigm at the heart of business cycle macroeconomics, the representative agent model. New macroeconomic models featuring inequality and aggregate uncertainty as well as a wealth of new microeconomic data have opened up exciting new avenues for research.

The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers focusing on heterogeneity in households and firms and the interplay of that heterogeneity with macroeconomic policy and aggregate fluctuations.

Suitable paper topics include (but are not necessarily limited to):
• The distribution of debt and the monetary transmission mechanism
• Distributional consequences of monetary policy, both conventional and unconventional
• Distributional consequences of shocks to the housing and the mortgage market
• The interaction between the housing market and aggregate shocks, including how this interacts with institutional differences across countries
• Implications of mortgage market regulations - both aggregate effects and consequences for individual households
• Linkages between monetary, fiscal and macroprudential policies in economies with financial frictions
• Empirical investigations on the importance of non-linearities in households’ responses to aggregate shocks

We welcome theoretical, quantitative and empirical papers. While the conference will have a focus on housing and the macroeconomy, we also welcome contributions focused on stabilisation through monetary, fiscal and macroprudential policy.

Participation in the conference has been confirmed by Christopher Carroll (Johns Hopkins University) and Sydney Ludvigson (NYU).

Submissions should be made in PDF format by March 15th, 2018 to Authors will be notified by May 1st, 2018. Funding is available for economy-class travel and accommodation for paper presenters and discussants.

The organising committee consists of Daria Finocchiaro (Sveriges Riksbank), Carlos Garriga (FRB St. Louis), Kurt Mitman (IIES and CEPR), Kathrin Schlafmann (IIES and CEPR) and Karl Walentin (Sveriges Riksbank). The programme and other information about the conference will be posted on the Riksbank website (, which also contains information about past conferences.

20/09/2018 Low Inflation and Wage Dynamics: Implications for Monetary Policy and Financial Stability, Rome
Hosted By: Banca d'Italia
Organizers: Martin Ellison, Giuseppe Ferrero, Tommaso Monacelli, Marianna Riggi and Eliana Viviano
The broad recovery in advanced economies in recent years has been accompanied by persistently weak nominal wage and price dynamics. This "missing inflation" puzzle is being addressed by both academics and policymakers, as it poses a serious challenge to monetary policy.

The aim of the conference is to foster the debate on a number of related issues. Has a structural break occurred in the relationships between cyclical conditions, wage dynamics and inflation? If a break occurred, what factors, domestic or global, are responsible for it? Does the observed low wage dynamic signal a decline in the NAIRU or does it reflect the inadequacy of standard measures of unemployment to fully capture the current labour market slack? To what extent is the effectiveness of monetary policy affected by structural changes in the relationship between inflation and the economic slack? Are changes in the monetary policy framework warranted, given the risks to price and financial stability posed by persistently low inflation and the presence of an effective lower bound to the policy rates?

Submissions on the following list of topics are particularly welcome.

  • Nonlinearities in the relationship between price and wage growth and cyclical conditions.
  • Structural changes in labour and product markets, their impact on the NAIRU and on the natural rate of interest.
  • The role of labour productivity, from both a cyclical and a long run perspective, for wage growth.
  • The impact of trade integration and other global forces on inflation.
  • Changes in the exchange rate and commodity prices pass-through.
  • The impact of prolonged periods of too low inflation on inflation expectations.
  • Measurement issues in labour, goods and service markets; labour intensive and extensive margins and nominal wage dynamics.
  • The implications for monetary policy and financial stability of a persistently below target inflation and low real interest rates.

Interested authors should submit their papers to The deadline for submitting the extended abstract or completed draft (strongly preferred) of the paper is 18:00 CET on Friday 4 May 2018. Please note in your submission whether you are willing to discuss a paper. The authors of accepted papers will be notified by Monday 4 June 2018. Only authors of accepted papers will be notified.

We are very pleased to confirm the attendance and participation of Prof. G. Eggertsson (Brown University) and Prof. M. Elsby (University of Edinburgh).

Limited financial support for economy class air travel and lodging expenses will be available for university-based authors and discussants. Barring exceptional circumstances, central bankers and other public officials will be asked to cover their own expenses. Where financial support is offered, this will be in accordance with the new CEPR guidelines.

To respond, please visit and indicate whether or not you wish to present a paper or would be willing to act as a discussant. If you do not currently have a CEPR profile, please create a new profile here and then click on the registration link above.
