|Description:||Macroeconomic Fluctuations and the Labor Market|
|Location:||Barcelona, campus of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain|
|Subject:||The aim of the conference is to bring together high quality research on the question how the labor market propagates and amplifies macroeconomic shocks. Both theoretical and empirical contributions are welcome. We are particularly interested in papers that go beyond recalibrating the standard models and uncover new theories and mechanisms, or new patterns in the data. Suitable paper topics include (but are not limited to): - Micro-foundations of wage rigidities - New evidence on fluctuations in worker flows, unemployment and wages - Alternatives to the aggregate matching function and the role of heterogeneity - Driving forces of fluctuations, alternatives to aggregate technology shocks [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
