Seventh ECB Workshop on Forecasting Techniques "New directions for forecasting"
The workshop provides a forum for the presentation of both theoretical and applied contributions that can help identify new directions for forecasting, particularly in the light of the issues raised by the recent financial and sovereign debt crises. The ongoing turbulence in the global economy, and especially in financial markets, requires a critical assessment of existing methods and the development of new paradigms in order to provide reliable analytical support for macroeconomic policy-makers. Topics that are of particular relevance to the 2012 workshop include: - comparative assessment of linear and non-linear forecasting models; - forecasting the macroeconomic implications of fiscal and financial stress; - forecasting rare events; - density forecasts and forecast combination; - forecasting performance and future directions with micro-founded models.
