PSE Macro Days 2021

September 16-17, 2021

Call for Papers – Deadline June 10th

The “International Macroeconomics” Banque de France - PSE and “Macroeconomic Risk” SCOR - PSE Chairs at the Paris School of Economics are pleased to announce the 2021 edition of the PSE Macro Days on the topic:

Back to which normal? Challenges and opportunities for the global economy after the pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic, and the policy response to it, has changed the world economy along many dimensions, including unprecedented levels of government debt, inflated Central Bank balance sheets, increased inequality within and macroeconomic divergence across countries, as well as a high level of uncertainty about the future economic outlook. This conference discusses the resulting macroeconomic challenges and appropriate policy responses. The organizers invite submissions of papers and extended abstracts on topics including, but not limited to:

  • The return of inflation risk
  • Macroeconomic policy in a recovering global economy
  • Macroeconomic policy and fragility with inflated public balance sheets
  • Inflation expectations in uncertain times
  • A new monetary policy framework for a changed world
  • Monetary-fiscal interaction with inflated balance sheets
  • New and old asymmetries and imbalances in the global economy

The following speakers have confirmed their presence:

  • Olivier Blanchard, Robert Solow Professor of economics emeritus, MIT and Fred Bergsten Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics
  • Ricardo Reis, A. W. Phillips Professor of Economics, London School of Economics and Political Science

The conference is currently planned as an in-person event in Paris. Depending on travel restrictions we will adopt a hybrid format. The organizers can cover travel and accommodation expenses for the presenter of accepted papers. To submit, please send a pdf of your paper or extended abstract to the following email address: macro at

The deadline for submissions is June 10th. Decisions will be made by June 20th.
