Workshop on Theoretical and Experimental Macroeconomics - Introduction

Macroeconomic theories have traditionally been tested using non‐experimental data from the field. However, modern, micro‐based macroeconomic models can also be tested in the laboratory, which affords better causal inference, and researchers have begun to pursue such experimental tests. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a platform for exchange of ideas and promote greater interaction between macroeconomic researchers and behavioral/experimental economists with the aim of advancing macroeconomics in a direction that allows it to account for more of the real behavior of economic agents and economies with the help of relevant experimental evidence.

The workshop will promote an active exchange and interaction of ideas and work on macroeconomic issues from behavioral, experimental, and/or theoretical approaches. Papers for this two-day workshop will be selected by the organizers from submissions. There will be 2 invited keynote lectures and a panel discussion on "the future role of laboratory experiments in macroeconomics."

To join the workshop, please read the call for papers and submit a paper or abstract.

Participation without submission is possible. Students from the 11th BESLab Experimental Economics Summer School in Macroeconomics are entitled and expected to participate in the workshop. All others who are interested in participating without presenting a paper, please contact the organizers using the contact form

The workshop is funded by the CRC TRR 190 Rationality and Competition
