International Conference "Towards Pluralism in Macroeconomics? 20 Years-Anniversary Conference of the fmm Research Network" - Macroeconomic Policy Institute IMK
Twenty years ago, the Research Network Macroeconomics and Macroeconomic Policies (fmm) was founded as a platform for analysis, research and discussion of macroeconomic issues. At this time macroeconomic theory and policy was dominated by neoclassical approaches. In contrast, the network was established to promote a heterodox concept of macroeconomics aiming at high employment, environmentally sustainable growth, price stability, reduced inequality and the elimination of poverty. At its 20th conference, the fmm is going to discuss the current state of macroeconomics. What has changed during the last 20 years? Is there a variety of approaches being discussed today? What are the improvements in modelling the economy in orthodox and heterodox approaches? What is the explanatory power and empirical content of macroeconomics today?
