Conference summary

The importance and usefulness of nonlinear models has been emphasised by the recent turbulent times. These models are crucial in fields of research and research-based policy advice regarding the nexus between financial instabilities and the macroeconomy, the housing market, the effects of standard and non-standard monetary policies, the effects of fiscal policies and the role of financial variables as providers of information regarding agents' attitude with respect to risk and stress conditions in financial markets.  The conference will cover a broad range of themes in macroeconomics and finance where nonlinearities are relevant. A special emphasis will be given to methodological, theoretical and empirical aspects of nonlinear models and their relevance for economic policy making. 

The event is hosted by the European Central Bank, and co-sponsored by the ECB, the EABCN and the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
