The global financial and economic crisis in 2008/2009 has revealed the critical role played by the financial sector of an economy. In response, many policy makers and academic scholars have focused their attention on the link between financial markets and macroeconomic outcome. Against this backdrop, the Center for Economic Policy (CEPR), the German Science Foundation (DFG), and the Research Center SAFE at Goethe University are organizing a joint conference on “Financial Markets and Macroeconomic Performance”.

Topics of interest include among others:  

  • The financial sector in business cycle models 
  • Financial regulation and macroeconomic volatility
  • Financial regulation and long-run growth
  • Monetary policy and redistribution 

David Domeij (Stockholm School of Economics), Sydney Ludvigson (New York University), Monika Piazzesi (Stanford University), Vincenzo Quadrini (University of Southern California), Martin Schneider (Stanford University), and Harald Uhlig (University of Chicago)  have already agreed to participate.   

If you are interested in presenting your work, please submit drafts or papers until January 31, 2017, to Corinna Jann-Grahovac. We cover travel and accommodation expenses for all active participants.



Wouter den Haan (London School of Economics and CEPR), Jan Pieter Krahnen (SAFE and Goethe University Frankfurt), Tom Krebs (University of Mannheim), Alexander Ludwig (SAFE and Goethe University Frankfurt).
