Unemployment, productivity and potential output: the aftermath of the crisis
11 - 12 October 2012, London
The BOE and LSE are holding a joint conference in the autumn, the first of an annual series. It will be held in London at the Bank of England on 11 and 12 October 2012. The aim is to ask what economics can tell us about unemployment, productivity and potential output, with a particular focus on the effect of the financial crisis and recession. The conference will bring together academics and policymakers to assess what theory and rigorous empirics can tell us about this hugely pressing issue. Confirmed keynote speakers include Philippe Aghion, Bart Hobijn and Fabien Postel-Vinnay. We envisage that papers on the impact of uncertainty, reallocation of resources, matching in labour and other markets and financial sector dislocation would fit, but anything relevant will be considered for the programme. Submissions should be made by sending papers to Sarah Bushell (email@example.com) before 31 May 2012. Decisions will be notified by 30 June 2012.
