Climate Change, Pandemics, Monetary Policy: New Approaches in Crisis Time

Wednesday, 9 December 2020
Danmarks Nationalbank (Online)
Denmarks Nationalbank

Danmarks Nationalbank, Deutsche Bundesbank and Norges Bank organize a joint online conference on new modeling approaches and novel empirical evidence on the challenges to policy provided by the recent medium and long-term changes in the economy. How have climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic changed our outlook on the use of economic and fiscal policy? How has our understanding of monetary policy evolved during the recent global crisis? Are we witnessing a fundamental reshaping in the nature of the shocks and the allocation of risks through the economy?

Pandemics and Climate Change Sessions - Call for Papers
Two parallel sessions on Pandemics and on Climate Change will feature short presentations, allowing for in-depth discussion with the authors. Each presenter will also introduce the discussion of another paper in the session. Theoretical and empirical contributions are welcome.

If you would like to present your research on either Pandemics/Covid-19 or Climate Change, please submit your paper to [email protected] by 25 November 2020. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by 30 November 2020.

Monetary Policy Sessions
Three sessions on Monetary Policy will each feature two closely related papers presented by invited speakers. Coupled papers will explore the same question from different perspectives, or drawing on different results. Speakers include Pierpaolo Benigno (Luiss University and University of Bern), Yann Koby (Princeton University) and Joe Vavra (University of Chicago).
