04/09/2019 New Consumption Data, Copenhagen

Organizers: Camille Landais and Søren Leth-Petersen

We invite you to submit a paper or express interest in attending this conference on New Consumption Data. The conference will take place on 4-5 September 2019, hosted by the Department of Economics and the Center of Economic Behavior and Inequality, CEBI, at the University of Copenhagen. Recently, a wave of research on consumption has introduced new types of spending data. One line of research exploits new administrative data and explore new methods to measure consumption and consumption responses based on imputing spending. Other researchers have gained access to extremely detailed and high frequency spending data directly from banks or financial planning apps. By now, this has turned into an extremely active and fruitful area of research, opening new and interesting perspectives in various fields in economics, from labor to public economics, from household finance to macroeconomics.

The goal of the conference is to bring people interested in the topic together to present new research using these new data and methods to measure spending, discuss pros and cons and exchange best practices, etc.

Relevant topics include, but is not limited to:

  • Asset returns and spending
  • Spending effects of unemployment events
  • Welfare consequences of social insurance programs
  • The impact of mortgage refinancing on spending
  • Validation of new spending measures
  • Consumption inequality
  • Spending effects of public policies
  • Insurance within the family
  • Children and spending
  • The event provides an opportunity for researchers from different universities and countries to discuss their work in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships. The conference brings together around 30-40 economists for a period of two days. To foster the desired interaction we ask that participants stay for the entire duration of the conference.

    Funding Economy fare travel and accommodation expenses will be covered for presenters. If you could contribute to the costs of your attendance from a research grant at your disposal, however, this would free up funds for other participants. Please indicate in your application whether you will be able to cover your own travel costs, or whether you will require funding.

    How to apply For CEPR members, please submit your paper via the CEPR online system by visiting the call for papers webpage . If you do not have a personal profile to use this area of the CEPR website as yet, you can create one here. If you have any difficulty in applying, please email Mariolina Ciccone in the CEPR events team, at [email protected] with the subject header "3577- New Consumption Data". If you wish to attend please do ensure that your application and paper reach CEPR by 18:00 (GMT) April 1, 2019. We cannot accept submissions received after this date. It may not be possible to accept all applications to attend this symposium if demand exceeds the space available. We aim to notify successful applicants by the end of May 2019.

    16/09/2019 Euro Area Business Cycle Network Training School on Solution Methods for Discrete Time Heterogeneous Agent Models and Markov Switching Linear Models, London

    General Description We are pleased to announce details of the latest three-day EABCN Training School. Professor Wouter den Haan and Dr Pontus Rendahl 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).

    Course Contents: This course is divided in to two parts, both directed to numerical solution methods of macroeconomic models.

    Day 1: In the first part, focus will be on regime switching linear(ized) models. These entails models that display significant nonlinearities across different regimes, but are otherwise well approximated linearly within a regime. Examples of such frameworks are models that can be in and out of a liquidity trap/the zero lower bound (ZLB), or models that otherwise face occasionally binding constraints. The day will focus on appropriate solution methods that are both fast and versatile.

    Day 2 and 3: In the second part (day two and three), focus will be on heterogeneous agent models (also known as incomplete markets models). The equilibrium of such models contain a full, endogenous, distribution of agents across income and wealth status, which (can) make them cumbersome to solve and analyse. The first day will focus on such models absent of any aggregate disturbances, while the second will include the challenges involved when aggregate shocks perturb the economy.

    How to apply: The course will take place at the Bank of England in London, UK. Participants will be invited to make their own arrangements regarding their travel, accommodation and meals. Further information will be available to successful applicants. Candidates who have a CEPR profile should apply by submitting their CV online by visiting the call for applications webpage . If you do not currently have a CEPR profile, please create a new one here. 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 2000 euro.

    Applications deadline is 6pm (GMT), 17 May 2019.

    If you have any issues logging in, please contact Mariolina Ciccone, Events Officer at CEPR, [email protected].

    About the Instructors: Wouter den Haan is a Professor at London School of Economics. He holds a PhD from Carnegie-Mellon University, and has previously worked for universities such as UC San Diego and London Business School. He is a programme director of CEPR, and Co-director of the Centre for Macroeconomics. His research interests are business cycles, frictions in financial and labour markets, and numerical methods to solve models with a large number of heterogeneous agents. Pontus Rendahl is a Reader ("Associate Professor") at the University of Cambridge. He holds a PhD from the European University institute, and has previously worked for universities such as UC Davis, and Paris School of Economics. He is a research affiliate at CEPR and the Centre for Macroeconomics.
