FINDING THE GAP - Output Gap Measurement in the Euro Area

Florence, Italy
17 April 2020

The Euro Area Business Cycle Dating Committee is organizing a conference on potential output and output gap measurement. The workshop is calling for papers that can shed light on how theoretical and statistical concepts of potential output and the output gap relate and how to measure them in practice. The focus is the Euro Area—either taken as a whole or, possibly, for different constituent countries. It would also be of great interest to the committee to have estimates on the relationship between cyclical fluctuations extracted with different methods and gaps.

New Perspectives on Interwar Financial and Banking Crises

Paris, France 
29-30 June 2020

The recent global financial crisis has sparked renewed interest in the interwar financial and banking crises, particularly those associated with the Great Depression of the 1930s. This new wave of research has been supported by an unprecedented increase in the digitisation of monetary and financial statistics as well as data on local economic activity and businesses. The digitisation of newspapers, central bank and parliamentary reports in several countries improves access to archival sources, opening new perspectives on the political economy of these crises.

Remarkable progress has been made in our understanding of domestic or international financial contagion (through interbank networks), as well as the real effects of banking crises.  However, this new wave of research has remained little comparative, and most of the work has focused on the contagion and consequences of the 1930-1931 banking troubles.
