15th Experimental Macroeconomics Summer School, June 27 - July 3


Imatge inicial

The aim of this summer school is to introduce young economists to experimental approaches of research in macroeconomics. Macroeconomic theories have traditionally been tested using non-experimental "field" data. However, modern, micro-founded macroeconomic models can also be tested in the laboratory, and researchers are increasingly pursuing such experimental tests. Graduate students and young faculty interested in macroeconomics or experimental economics are invited to attend this intensive 7-day summer school (which will include the two-day Workshop on Theoretical and Experimental Macroeconomics on June 28-29, 2024). The Summer School has received support from NTU and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. There will be no registration fee, but accommodation and travel is to be covered by the participant.

The summer school will be held from June 27 to July 3 at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. 

The general idea of the summer school is the following:

Students will be taught experimental methods and are introduced to various topics of experimental research relevant to macroeconomics, such as growth, labor, monetary exchange, financial crises, equilibrium selection and stability. Students will be asked to participate in experiments and to develop their own experimental macroeconomic projects in groups of 3 or 4 students. Faculty will assist with and critique these projects. The different links on this page will give you access to details regarding the particulars of the summer school in experimental macroeconomics.

The summer school consists of 5 days of teaching with about 11-12 lectures of 90 minutes by the faculty, about 2-3 experiments, 5 group sessions of 90 minutes each, and a final session in which student groups present their proposals and get comments from the faculty. Faculty members will also help during the group sessions for counseling students. Indeed, one purpose of the summer school is to start new research projects and think of macroeconomic topics and models that can be implemented in the laboratory or in field experiments in a way that advances our knowledge of behavior and our understanding of macroeconomics. Past participants have presented their work in subsequent research workshops and published articles based on their summer school projects in high-ranked journals.

Summer school students are expected to attend the 2-day Workshop on June 28-29, 2024 on Theoretical and Experimental Macroeconomics that will also take place in NTU, Singapore.

The deadline for applications is March 30, 2024.
