The Österreichische Nationalbank and the University of Vienna, Department of Economic and Social History are kindly inviting you to participate in the 10th Conference of the South-East European Monetary History Network (SEEMHBN) which will be held on October 1, 2015 in Vienna, Austria.
The relationship between finance and growth is an evergreen in economic history, at least since the seminal work of Alexander Gerschenkron. In particular, the role of the financial sector for growth and development of emerging countries has been in the focus of quantitative and qualitative research.
The purpose of the 10th Conference of the SEEMHN is to gather scholars working on financial development (e.g. development of banks, central banks and financial markets) and economic development (e.g. growth and structural change) in Southeastern Europe to get new, challenging and exciting insights into the links between the financial sector and the real economy.
Quantitative and qualitative research as well as national case studies and cross-country comparative work can be presented at this conference.
The conference will take place at the Oesterreichische Nationalbank, Vienna, and will be followed by a workshop on “The central bank balance sheet in a long-term perspective” on October 2, 2015. Conference participants are invited to also attend the workshop.
It is also possible to attend the workshop as an observer only. If you wish to make use of this option we kindly request that you register your attendance, as the number of participants is limited.
