2021 GEC virtual Conference


Call for papers: Budgeting in A Crises | Macroeconomy Relief Policies 

Government responses to crises, economic fallout, business cycle recessions, and shocks largely diverge. Responses vary depending on the nature of the shock and country circumstances. Adding up the different measures, such as tax and spending, loans and guarantees, monetary instruments, and foreign exchange operations, makes it challenging to assess the efficiency of the aggregate policy environment and crisis-contamination measures. 

We are especially interested in submissions covering topics that include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following issues:

  • the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on global economies and sector-wide performance measures. 
  • business cycle stabilization policies to foster economic re-convergence.
  • the scope and limits of cross-country comparisons in response to shocks and applied mitigation policies.
  • The role of automatic stabilizers, fiscal stimulus, optimal monetary policies in stabilizing economies. 
  • The role of behavioral nudges in the design of public policies.

M&S Research Hub in collaboration with Infinity Sum Modeling (USA) and AGIR (Algeria and France) invites economists and professionals to submit theoretical and applied papers in all areas of economics and finance for presentation at the 2021 virtual GEC conference. Papers discussing pre-identified topics are particularly welcomed.
