The use of economic tendency surveys to assess potential growth and the position of economies in the business cycle
13 - 14 November 2019 | OECD Boulogne, Boulogne-Billancourt (Paris), France
Timely and accurate estimates of the productive capacity of economies and their position in the business cycle are crucial for monetary policy, fiscal surveillance, as well as for choosing the appropriate mix of stabilisation and structural policies. In cooperation with KOF/ETH Zurich, OECD and INSEE, CIRET will organise a 1 ½-day workshop on the measurement of output gap, potential growth and productivity, with a focus on how economic tendency surveys can improve the accuracy of the corresponding estimates in real time. Submissions on this topic or related to the use of economic tendency surveys in general are welcome.
Deadline for paper submissions is July 15th, 2019. Submissions should be provided in MS Word or PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Authors will receive a notification in September regarding the acceptance of their work.
Authors are also kindly invited to submit their ready-to-publish papers to the CIRET & Springer Journal of Business Cycle Research (JBCY). Submissions accepted by the Editor-in-Chief will be peer-reviewed by two referees and published in a Special Issue of the Journal.
The registration fee for the workshop is €100 - https://www.ciret.org/workshops/
Participants are invited to make their own arrangements regarding accommodation.
