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 Banque de France, CEPR and Paris School of Economics joint 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:
George-Marios Angeletos (Northwestern University)
Ulrike Malmendier (University of California, Berkeley 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
