The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers to discuss the implications of monetary policy for asset prices, and conversely what asset prices can teach us about the transmission mechanisms of monetary policy.  In the current environment with high inflation, dramatic monetary tightening, and volatile financial markets, these questions are more important than ever. This is an opportunity to foster collaborations between researchers coming from the macro and finance sides, and across different types of institutions.

This in-person conference will take place on September 8-9, 2023 and will include paper presentations with discussants. There will also be opportunities for informal discussions and networking.

Interested researchers are invited to send submissions to mfrinfo@uchicago.edu. We especially encourage submissions from early-career economists (i.e., post-docs, assistant professors, and recently promoted associate professors).  Extended abstracts will be considered, but we will prioritize complete drafts.

The deadline for submission is May 1, 2023. Decisions will be announced by June 1, 2023.
