What is LAEF?

Furthering research in growth
and fluctuations of aggregate economies.

"[I]t is distressing how often one can guess the answer given to an economic question merely by knowing who asked it."

-George J. Stigler, 1946

Women in Macro Conference - Virtual Event

September 24-25, 2020

The third annual Women in Macro Conference brings together influential women economists from around the world working in the field of macroeconomics, broadly defined. The objective of the conference is to feature the high-quality work of women in a field in which they are significantly under-represented. It provides participants an informal venue to strengthen their research and build their network, particularly to women at early stages of their careers. This year, the conference also includes a policy panel featuring Gita Gopinath and Sandra Black, moderated by Laura Veldkamp, discussing the economic effects of COVID-19. We are happy that during these challenging times we are able to hold the conference virtually, allowing for a much broader audience. Organizers: Marina Azzimonti, Alessandra Fogli, Veronica Guerrieri
