Pitt Hosts Gathering of National and International Macroeconomics Experts

In November, the University’s Pittsburgh campus served as the site for the biannual Midwest Macroeconomics Meetings. The program committee was co-chaired by Marla Ripoll and Daniele Coen-Pirani, both faculty members in the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and SciencesDepartment of Economics. The 190 participants at the conference discussed research about a variety of topics, including inequality, labor markets, technical change, trade, sovereign default, demographics, human capital, productivity, growth, business cycles, optimal taxation, fiscal policy and monetary policy.
