The 2nd  Paris Conference on the Macroeconomics of Expectations

HEC Paris, 6-7 June 2024

Using micro-data on households, firms and professional forecasters much recent research has documented significant and heterogeneous departures of expectations from the rational, fully informed benchmark. Other contributions have stressed the consequences of limited information and imperfect expectations for macroeconomic dynamics and the effects of policies.

The second edition of this conference aims at bringing together leading researchers from academia, central banks and other policy institutions to present research findings related to the importance of expectations for macroeconomic dynamics and the conduct of macroeconomic policies.

Confirmed keynote speakers are:

  • Ricardo Reis (London School of Economics and CEPR)
  • Michael Weber (University of Chicago and CEPR)

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Macroeconomic consequences of information frictions
  • Households / firms expectation formation
  • The role of information frictions for monetary policy
  • Central bank communication and expectations
  • The role of expectations for individual decisions

The deadline for submission was Sunday 3 March 2024.  Travel and local accommodation for speakers and discussants from academic institutions will be funded by the Banque de France according to its internal guidelines.
