The Groupe de Recherché en Économie Théorique et Appliquée (GREThA) UMR CNRS 5113 is kindly inviting you to participate in the First Bordeaux Workshop on Agent-Based Macroeconomics 2013, held November 7 – 8, 2013 in Pessac, France at the Montesquieu University — Bordeaux IV. We gratefully acknowledge the support by the Bank of Finland, the Montesquieu Bordeaux IV University, and the GDRe Monnaie, Banque, Finance. This workshop is also affiliated to the Society for Computational Economics.
Agent-based models have become an important framework for analyzing complex macroeconomic dynamics resulting from the interaction of heterogeneous agents with bounded rationality. This framework frees the modeler from the constraints imposed by the substantive rationality, equilibrium, and rational expectations assumptions, and naturally provides alternative micro foundations to the analysis of macroeconomic dynamics, the emergence of complex aggregate behavior, the effects of economic policies.
A strong flow of models have been proposed during the recent years and this workshop aims to draw an account of the main contributions of these developments, as well to discuss the perspectives for future research.
Sessions and Submission
The workshop will include three thematic sessions, and a closing round table. Each session will be opened by a keynote speaker (45 minutes), followed by a Pause-café (15 minutes), three presentations (30 minutes each), discussion (30 minutes)
- Macro ABM and empirical stylized facts: Paul De Grauwe
- Macro ABM, learning and expectations: Cars Hommes
- Macro ABM, financial structure and investment: Mauro Gallegati
Round Table on the future of Macro ABM, new questions and perspectives with Jasmina Arifovic, Paul de Grauwe, Giovanni Dosi, Mauro Gallegati, Cars Hommes, and Jouko Vilmunen.
