The 2nd Workshop of the Australaisan Macroeconomics Society (WAMS) will be held on December 11 – 13, 2015 in Sydney, Australia at the Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach Hotel together with the Laboratory for Aggregate Economic and Finance (LAEF).
The Australasian Macroeconomics Workshop (AMW) and the Workshop on Macroeconomic Dynamics (WMD) have joined forces to become the Workshop of the Australasian Macroeconomics Society (WAMS).
The second Workshop Australasian Macroeconomics Society (WAMS), hosted by the UNSW Australia, Business School and School of Economics, Sydney, Australia, welcomes submissions in all areas of macroeconomics.
This year, in collaboration with WAMS, we have the honor to host a one-day event right after WAMS sponsored by the Laboratory for Aggregate Economic and Finance (LAEF) under the direction of Peter Rupert and Finn Kydland at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The LAEF day will focus on a specific topic to be chosen from the set of submitted papers by Peter Rupert and Greg Kaplan (Princeton U.).
The workshop has 3 principal purposes:
First, it is an opportunity for Australasian macroeconomists to share and discuss their results and ideas with each other, to encourage excellence and collaboration in research in macroeconomics in Australasia.
Second, by bringing top international researchers here, the workshop aims to help connect researchers here with top people from around the world in a two-way learning process.
Third, by bringing together both theoretical and applied researchers, the workshop aims to foster synergies between and across all modern scientific approaches to macroeconomics.
The plenary speakers for the WAMS are:
- Professor Randall Wright U of Wisconsin, Madison
- Professor George Evans, U of Oregon
- Nobel Laureate 2004, Professor Finn Kydland, UCSB and LAEF
