Econometric Methods for Business Cycle Analysis, Forecasting and Policy Simulations

Thursday, 11 June 2015 to Friday, 12 June 2015

The recent turbulent times have revived the interest in business cycle analysis, forecasting and methods to assess the effects of economic policies. This, in turn, has generated the development of refined or totally new econometric methods, in particular based on Bayesian techniques. The conference will cover a broad range of econometric themes with emphasis on methodological, theoretical and empirical aspects and their relevance for economic policy making.

Fabio Canova (EUI), Herman van Dijk (Erasmus University), Jesus Fernandez-Villaverde (University of Pennsylvania), Alejandro Justiniano (Chicago FED) and Hashem Pesaran (University of Southern California and University of Cambridge) have confirmed their participation.
