The European Association of Young Economists (EAYE), in collaboration with Leipzig University, is pleased to announce that the 1st EAYE Workshop will take place at Leipzig University on September 10-11, 2018.

Since the Great Recession, research on housing and macroeconomics has become a highly relevant and vibrant research field within macroeconomics. What drives house-price fluctuations? How do pronounced fluctuations in house prices and housing credit affect the real economy? What explains the long run dynamics of house prices? The aim of the workshop is to bring together young economists, as well as a few distinguished senior researchers, that work on these pressing questions and on housing and macroeconomics in general.

We are delighted to announce that two keynote lectures will be given by Alberto Martín (CREI, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona GSE, CEPR) and Moritz Schularick (University of Bonn, CEPR).

The submission deadline is June 7, 2018.

For the past few decades, the growth of industrialised economies has been remarkably balanced. This column suggests that such balanced growth results from schooling levels increasing over time. When capital and schooling are sufficiently complementary, increases in schooling offset the effect of capital deepening on the capital share and ensure that growth remains balanced.
