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.
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.
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.
Abstracts and presentations are in English.
