15 - 16 December 2016 / London / Bank of England, Brevan Howard Centre for Financial Analysis, CEPR and Centre for Macroeconomics

The global financial crisis has had a profound impact on output and productivity in advanced and emerging economies. In response, policymakers around the world have acted boldly with monetary policy, macro-prudential policy and regulation.

Is productivity being held back by financial factors - such as the lack of long term finance for long term investment - or is productivity being held back by real economy factors, such as globalisation and demographics? The recent crisis has also spurred a reassessment of the relationship between the level (and type) of finance and growth. Could weak productivity growth owe in part to wasteful investment spending or an undersupply of financial services? How does the mix of early and late stage financing drive investment and productivity? This conference aims to bring together perspectives on these big questions, as they will provide important guidance for future policy actions.

2 - 3 March 2017 / Brussels / Vrije Universiteit Brussel, INFER

This workshop aims at bringing together experts in the analysis of news, forecasting, uncertainty and the role of expectations in fiscal policy. The main purpose is to debate issues in the theoretical and empirical analysis of expectations in fiscal policy, and what new insights the latest analysis can deliver to policymakers.

Changes in the behaviour of fiscal and monetary policy influence beliefs about the way debt will be stabilized. Time consistent policies that are bound by rules are just one of the possible regimes. There have been large shifts in the policy mix in economic history. Exiting from current strategies might be complicated and not time-consistent anymore. If policies become locked in, and economic agents start to believe future changes are unlikely, the effects of fiscal and monetary policy may change.
