Event description

Description

The goal of the annual EWPM is to bring together economists with a strong interest in political economy and macroeconomics, creating a productive atmosphere and aiming to inform policymakers on topical macro-debates. It was initially intended as a small-scale and collaborative research event, but one that may grow over the years into a larger forum. The 1st EWPM was held in Mainz on 29-30 March 2016 and consisted of closed presentations followed by discussions. Different from the 1st EWPM in Mainz, the 2nd EWPM in Reading now opens up the attendance and discussions to a wider audience. And, since the EWPM is this year in the UK, we decided to convene a “topical panel” on Brexit. We also introduce a “special talk” on incorporating virtue ethics into social welfare functions of normative economics.

The intended audience includes researchers from universities, central banks, government departments, international institutions and independent think-tanks, who have to address in their everyday work a number of pressing political problems and policymaking trade-offs among those that our modern global society is facing. PhD students specialising at the intersection of macroeconomics and political economy will find the workshop of immediate interest and use.

This workshop supports the University of Reading Research Strategy Theme Prosperity and Resilience, and is hosted by the Economic Analysis Research Group (EARG) at the School of Politics, Economics and International Relations (SPEIR).
