PIERO MONCASCA aims at establishing a tradition of meetings among Italian-based macro-monetary economists. The final goal is to create synergies, strengthen the cooperation and foster the development of joint research projects. Participation to these workshops by researchers as well as Ph.D students close to thesis completion and Post-Docs is encouraged.
The first edition of the PIERO MONCASCA MONEY-MACRO MEETINGS took place at the University of Pavia on September 22, 2006. The meeting gathered several researchers (a somewhat random sample may be seen here) who presented their work-in-progress papers and discussed them with a large and qualified audience. Given the success of this meeting, the scientific committee decided to organize an official meeting each year in September.
This website collects some information regarding the PIERO MONCASCA MONEY-MACRO GROUP. In particular, it provides the programs of the previously organized workshops, along with the mailing list of the members of the group. Here this information goes:
There is a sort of 'moral commitment' required to each member of the group, i.e. that of attending the yearly meeting. If you want to become a member of the group or you have suggestions/proposals/critiques, please write an email to Efrem Castelnuovo.
We look forward to meeting you at our workshops!
