15th Annual
Conference of Macroeconomists from Liberal Arts Colleges

August 6-7, 2019.

Macalester College, St. Paul, Minnesota.

You are invited to share your research and to learn about the work being done by other macroeconomists at liberal arts colleges. The primary goals of this conference are

to create an open forum that allows macroeconomists at liberal arts colleges to expose their work to a group of their peers and gain valuable feedback, and
to build a network of colleagues with whom to share ideas and collaborate on research projects.
We invite faculty to submit paper proposals in all fields of macroeconomics, including the following:

  • monetary economics,
  • monetary and fiscal policy,
  • open-economy macro,
  • economic growth,
  • finance and international finance,
  • macroeconomic history, and
  • political economy

Submissions from junior faculty are particularly encouraged, as are submissions of work in preliminary stages. Links to submit a paper and register for the conference are located at the top of the page.
