Macro Reading Group

The purpose of this group is to introduce attendees to widely-discussed recent papers in macroeconomics. Each week, a presenter (student or faculty) will present an important published or working paper to the other members of the group. There is no taxation without representation: you must be willing to present at least once a semester. Presenters are also welcome to present their own research, or distribute written work for comments. This is intended to be a low-stakes environment where everyone can see where macroeconomics as a field is headed, and work on their presentation skills.

The group will meet each Friday at 1pm in Building 25, Room B003.
