Meetings for the month of September 2020
|03/09/2020||New Consumption Data, Copenhagen|
Organizers: Camille Landais, Søren Leth-Petersen and Johannes Spinnewijn
|We invite you to submit a paper or express interest in attending the third conference on New Consumption Data by the University of Copenhagen and CEPR. The conference will take place on 3-4 September 2020, hosted by the Department of Economics and the Center of Economic Behavior and Inequality, CEBI, at the University of Copenhagen.
For the past two years, the conference has successfully gathered together researchers working on a wave of research on consumption using new types of spending data, such as imputed consumption from administrative data or high frequency spending data 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 are not limited to:
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.

|16/09/2020||Third European Macrohistory Workshop, London|
|Hosted By: London School of EconomicsWith: UCL
Organizers: Rui Esteves, Eric Monnet, Matthias Morys, Natacha Postel-Vinay, Moritz Schularick, Ali Coskun Tuncer and Nikolaus Wolf
|The Department of Economic History at LSE, the Department of History at UCL and CEPR are organising a "European Macrohistory Workshop", which will be held in London, UK, from 16th to 17th September 2020.
The workshop - which follows the first two events held in June 2016 at the Macrohistory Lab at the University of Bonn (Prof. Moritz Schularick) and in March 2018 at the Department of Economics at University of York (Dr. Matthias Morys) - aims to bring together economic historians and macroeconomists. Half the sessions will be devoted to general topics at the intersection of macroeconomics and economic history, while the other half will focus on fiscal policy, public finance and inequality as one of the key issues facing developed countries in the medium and long-term. The objective of the workshop is to strengthen further the ties which have developed in recent years to great mutual advantage between economic and financial historians, on the one hand, and macroeconomists and applied economists, on the other.
Complete manuscripts or 3-page drafts should be submitted to [email protected] no later than 28th February (in pdf-format). We will acknowledge receipt of submission and the authors of accepted papers will be notified by 16th March 2020.
Accommodation and travel expenses will be covered for programme participants.

|24/09/2020||BoL/NBP/CEBRA/CEPR conference on "Adjustments in and to an Uncertain World", Vilnius|
Organizers: Philippe Bacchetta, Julian di Giovanni, Pawel Piotr Kopiec, Povilas Lastauskas, Andrei A. Levchenko and Krzysztof Makarskiz
A recent tendency to blame globalization, close borders, increase barriers for international commerce and factor movements produce many uncertainties and a need to adapt and adjust behavior. Events such as an increased concentration on domestic matters and engagement in trade wars by the US, the British decision to leave the European Union and an increase in global political and economic power by China, among others, call for a deeper understanding of how firms adjust their behavior within such an uncertain and evolving environment. By focusing on micro-level decisions as well as the major constraints and frictions, we hope to deepen our understanding and draw useful policy implications to adjust faster and more efficiently in the inherently frictional, quickly changing and uncertain world.
