CREI LECTURES IN MACROECONOMICS

Co-Sponsored by Princeton University Press

In 2008 CREI launched a new series of biennial lectures in macroeconomics, with support from Princeton University Press. The aim was to bring together young but already senior speakers who had significantly contributed to the study of macroeconomics or international economics, and to provide a high-level summary of recent work that had already had a large impact on the profession.

The inaugural series dealt with Labor Markets and Business Cycles and were led by Professor Robert Shimer (University of Chicago).
