Conference: Disaggregating the Business Cycle
The global financial crisis has stimulated theoretical and empirical research on the sources and propagnation mechanismus underlying business cycles. In particular, it called into question standard methods based on macroeconomic aggregates.
The conference focused on empirical and theoretical contributions providing a more disaggregate perspective on business cycles and new perspectives on structural analysis, forecasting, as well as economic policy design and assassment.
Empirical applications on the euro area are particularly welcome.
