Financial Shocks, Channels, and Macro Outcomes

The workshop will run for 1 day and will take place on June 19, 2019 in Barcelona. The goal of this workshop is to discuss recent developments on the identification of the real effects of financial frictions. We are particularly interested in applied theoretical and empirical work using micro data on the interplay between financial institutions, financial shocks and their short run and long run real effects. We encourage submissions addressing issues including (but not limited to):

  • Financial frictions, bank lending, and the real effects of the misallocation of credit
  • Micro data (on finance and real outcomes) for macro questions
  • Credit booms, and the endogeneity of financial shocks
  • Finance, innovation, productivity and growth
  • Interactions between financial and labor-market frictions
  • The short and long run real effects of financial shocks, and optimal monetary and fiscal policy responses
