3rd Annual Labor Markets and Macroeconomic Outcomes

April 12-13, 2024
Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN

This conference is co-sponsored and hosted by Vanderbilt University. This conference focuses on the role labor markets play in determining broader macroeconomic outcomes. Bringing together a diverse group of researchers studying both new labor datasets and new theories of the labor market, the conference goal is to broaden understanding of how labor market outcomes are affected by and contribute to both short-run business cycles and long-run economic trends. Participants will consider both aggregate labor market outcomes and how macroeconomic forces disproportionately impact individual workers and firms across the wage, income, skill, and productivity distributions. Discussions arising from this conference will help inform policymakers seeking both aggregate labor market stability and more equitable labor market outcomes for a diverse set of both workers and employers. The conference organizers are Adam Blandin (Assistant Professor, Vanderbilt University), Ben Griffy (Assistant Professor, University at Albany), Nick Pretnar,(Postdoctoral Scholar, UCSB-LAEF), and David Wiczer (Associate Adviser, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta).
