Centre for Macroeconomics

LSE Center of Macroeconomics faculty work in progress

This workshop meets on Mondays 11am-12pm in room 32L.1.04 when the term is in session. It is an internal seminar for LSE faculty, Centre for Macroeconomics members, and PhD students writing a dissertation in macroeconomics. All others need an invitation to attend. Most weeks, someone will give an informal presentation of his or her research in progress related (loosely) to macroeconomics. This is a venue for early-stage research to be discussed and the author to get feedback.

The workshop is organised by Ricardo Reis (r.a.reis@lse.ac.uk). For further information or to be added to the e-mail list, please e-mail him or Coralie Simmons (c.simmons1@lse.ac.uk).
