Annual Conference on Macroeconomics
The NBER Macroeconomics Annual seeks to bring together the latest research on important and policy-relevant topics in macroeconomics. The span of research includes applied theory as well as empirical work, open-economy macroeconomics, and work on financial markets that bears on macroeconomics. The inaugural Macroeconomics Annual meeting was held in 1986, with Stanley Fischer as the organizer. Over the past 30 years, the organizers have included Ben Bernanke, Olivier Blanchard, Mark Gertler, Jonathan Parker, Ken Rogoff, and Julio Rotemberg, as well as the current organizers Martin Eichenbaum and Erik Hurst.
