Call for Papers: TRADE AND GEOGRAPHY

March 16-17, 2018
Cambridge, MA
Organizers: Stephen Redding and Esteban Rossi-Hansberg


The endogenous location of economic agents relative to one another in space influences their consumption, production and investment decisions. It affects their pattern and volume of trade, the markets that they participate in, and the way they organize production processes across locations. As such, geography shapes the impact of local, regional, industry, and aggregate shocks, and the effects of national and local policies.

This Spring 2018 meeting of the NBER International Trade and Investment Program will focus on this set of issues. The meeting will welcome researchers interested in these topics from a variety of perspectives, including, but not limited to, international trade, regional and urban economics, labor, development, and macroeconomics. Both empirical and theoretical papers are welcome.

Please upload submissions to the following web link by FRIDAY JANUARY 19, 2018

Authors chosen to present papers at the conference will be notified in late January 2018. Please do not submit papers that will have been published by the meeting date.

The NBER will cover the cost of domestic travel and hotel expenses for up to two authors per paper. Questions about this conference may be addressed to confer@nber.org.
