Conference 2014

The Centre for Growth and Business Cycle Research at the University of Manchester will host its seventh conference on Growth and Business Cycle in Theory and Practice on 3-4 July 2014. The Conference is intended to provide a forum for the dissemination of recent research on growth and business cycles from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. The Conference is unique in the UK, and should be of interest to both academic economists and policy makers alike. 

The Keynote Speakers for the 2014 CGBCR conference are:

  • Guido Ascari   (Oxford and Pavia)
  • Paul De Grauwe  (LSE)
  • Nobuhiro Kiyotaki  (Princeton)
  • Marcus Miller (Warwick)
  • Simon Wren-Lewis  (Oxford)

A Supplement Issue of The Manchester School is planned for the conference. The selection will be based on a standard, but high-speed, refereeing process with the view to publishing the highest quality submissions.   

Registration and other information

The online paper submission is now closed.   Due to the large number of papers submitted, only accepted papers will receive an electronic confirmation by the end of April 2014.  The presenters of accepted papers must confirm attendance by registering as soon as possible. Those who are unable to attend should notify the conference organisers (below) as soon as possible.

The Centre is pleased to announce a relatively low registration fee of £200 due to the financial support of The Manchester School and the Department of Economics at Manchester. The Centre gratefully acknowledges this support. The fee covers both days of the conference, including all beverages (tea/coffee), buffet lunches, and the conference dinner (with wine).
