Macro Fluctuations with Micro Frictions

The BSE Summer Forum Workshop on Macro Fluctuations with Micro Frictions will take place in Barcelona from June 14-15, 2022.

We are regularly checking safety regulations related to the COVID-19 pandemic. If an in-person event is not possible, a shorter version of this workshop will be held online.

This workshop focuses on the macroeconomic implications of micro-level frictions, such as adjustment costs, informational rigidities, search and matching frictions, costly reallocation, irreversibility, taxation, among others. Topics of particular interest include price and wage setting, capital and labor dynamics, trade, durables, inventories, portfolio management. Papers with strong theoretical and quantitative components, disciplined with microdata, are encouraged.
