The Becker Friedman Institute is hosting the third Chicago Initiative in Theory and Empirics (CITE) conference to discuss and enhance important new work at the intersection of finance and macroeconomics. The challenges posed by the financial crisis and subsequent recession present a clear need for active and continued discussion of empirical and theoretical work in this area.
The conference is designed specifically to encourage sharing of new ideas and early-stage models of financial markets with macroeconomic linkages, particularly by young economists. The program will include presentations and posters. This year, we feature graduate student sessions on the third day of the program, August 9, 2017. Throughout the conference, scholars will refine their work through active discussion and lively exchanges.
This program is a counterpart to the Stanford Institute on Theoretical Economics.
