ANN -- Conference on History of Macroeconomics
Louvain-la-neuve, Belgium
We believe that it is time to organise a broader conference on the history of macroeconomics that will draw together economists and historians of economics who are working on the subject. Our hope is that this will encourage more systematic inquiries into the subject and open up new ways of thinking about it. It may make it possible to address broader questions such as the identity of macroeconomics as a field in relation to economics as a whole as well as a better understanding of its origins and the relevance of this for understanding contemporary developments. Our aim is to keep the conference fairly small (around 30 people) to optimise interactions and discussion, though this may have to be adjusted in view of the response we get. Proposals for papers can cover any aspect of the history of macroeconomics. Areas that might be discussed include the following: Business cycle and monetary theory in the inter-war period and their relations to post-war developments; The first generation of Keynesian economists: Hicks, Samuelson, Modigliani, Hansen, Lange; From the monetarist Counter-revolution to the Keynesian/monetarist synthesis; The neoclassical synthesis and the new classical macroeconomics; The rise and decline of Keynesian macroeconometric models; The interaction of economic theory and econometric techniques; Revisiting disequilibrium theory; From IS-LM to real business cycle models; Macroeconomics in textbooks.
