Among the leadership and contributors to the Becker Friedman Institute's Macro Financial Modeling Group are many who literally wrote the book on the status of macroeconomics today.
Group member Harald Uhlig coedited the new Handbook of Macroeconomics Vol. 2 with Stanford University's John Taylor. Below is a list of other group members and frequent participants in the modeling effort who contributed chapters to the handbook, forthcoming in January 2017.
Much of this work was shared and refined at a conference sponsored by the institute in April 2015. We're proud to be working with many who are at the forefront of macroeconomic science and are defining the field.
