YSI @ the 45th Eastern Economics Association Conference

The Keynesian Economics and Complexity Economics Working Groups announce two special sessions, to be held at the annual conference of the EEA in New York. In the 45th Eastern Economics Association Conference to be held in NYC between Feb. 28–Mar. 3, 2019, we will have the opportunity to question what are the alternatives provided by new economic thinking and where we can go from there. We are happy to announce two special sessions jointly organized by the Keynesian Economics and Complexity Economics Working Groups of the YSI/INET. For these sessions, we welcome contributions related (but not limited) to the following topics:

  1. The causes and consequences of economic crises;
  2. Policy responses to economic downturns;
  3. Economic policies and their effects on economic growth and income distribution;
  4. Financialization and its effects on the economic activity;
  5. Alternative macroeconomic models (e.g. Stock Flow Consistent, Agent Based, Kaleckian, Minskian) related to issues such as macroeconomic instability, economic growth and inequality;
  6. Complex theories that deal with instability;
  7. Empirical work in finance using complexity methods (i.e. Network Analysis).
