On September 16-17, 2011, The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University and the Laboratory for Aggregate Economics and Finance at UC Santa Barbara will host the second annual conference entitled “Advances in Macro-Finance II,” designed to bring together leading scholars in the field.

The conference will focus on research on the relationship between asset prices and macroeconomic fundamentals. Topics will include, but are not limited to: production economies; exotic preferences; time variation in expected returns; learning; and pricing currencies, commodities and sovereign debt. Preference has been given to recent papers that had not previously been presented at major conferences.

To the extent possible, the organizers have paired authors to discussant with different backgrounds (macroeconomics and finance), with senior academics discussing the work of junior colleagues.
