Technological change is leading to a world where markets for goods, services, assets, and workers are all becoming truly global. Research can play an important role in informing how businesses, consumers, and policymakers respond. This year’s conference, hosted by the Becker Friedman Institute’s International Economics Initiative, is intended to bring together a small group of faculty working at the intersection of international finance and international macro finance to discuss early stage research in an informal setting.
