3rd NIFIP International Conference on Macroeconomic policy in times of crisis 2013

  • Conference Call
  • The Fac­ul­dade de Econo­mia do Porto at the Uni­ver­si­dade do Porto is kindly invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in the 3rd Edi­tion of the NIFIP’s Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on “Macro­eco­nomic pol­icy in times of cri­sis” 2013, held Novem­ber 28 – 29, 2013 in Porto, Por­tu­gal.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    Since the emer­gence of the cur­rent (finan­cial, eco­nomic, sov­er­eign debt) cri­sis, the debate on ade­quate macro­eco­nomic poli­cies has been (re)brought to the cen­ter of aca­d­e­mic and polit­i­cal dis­cus­sion. In par­tic­u­lar, at the euro­zone, mon­e­tary and fis­cal poli­cies have been chal­lenged by reces­sion, grow­ing unem­ploy­ment and pub­lic debt, spe­cially in periph­eral countries.

    In NIFIP´s 3rd inter­na­tional con­fer­ence, we would like to pro­vide a stim­u­lat­ing venue for the dis­cus­sion of top­ics related to the present world eco­nomic con­di­tions. The dis­cus­sion can be approached fom dif­fer­ent angles, such as the diag­no­sis of the eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion, eval­u­a­tion of adopted or pro­posed eco­nomic pol­icy mea­sures, and per­spec­tives for the future, namely con­cern­ing effec­tive ways out of this crisis.

    Con­fer­ence Topics

    Although papers are invited on all areas of eco­nom­ics, spe­cial empha­sis will be given on areas such as:

    • The role of cen­tral banks and mon­e­tary policy
    • The role of fis­cal policy
    • The con­duct of mon­e­tary pol­icy under zero bound conditions
    • The role of, and prospects for, eco­nomic growth
    • The eco­nomic and polit­i­cal con­di­tions for sus­tain­able mon­e­tary unions
    • Reform­ing the euro zone
    • Aus­ter­ity ver­sus growth
    • New devel­op­ment paradigms


    There will be at least one Ple­nary Ses­sion with Invited Speak­ers and sev­eral Par­al­lel Ses­sions. In par­al­lel ses­sions, accepted papers will be grouped into ses­sions with three to four papers. Each paper pre­sen­ta­tion con­sists of 20‐minute talks, fol­lowed at the end by a period for dis­cus­sion and debate.


    We intend to pub­lish a book in an inter­na­tional edi­tor, with a selec­tion of papers of the present and the 2nd NIFIP Con­fer­ence. All avail­able papers will be con­sid­ered for publication.
