The Centre for Growth and Business Cycle Research (CGBCR), University of Manchester, will host its ninth conference on Growth and Business Cycle in Theory and Practice on 5-6 July 2018.

The conference is intended to provide a forum for the dissemination of recent research on macroeconomics and particularly economic growth and business cycles. The conference is unique in the UK, and should be of interest to both academic economists and policy makers alike. The conference will be held at the Manchester Conference Centre.

The keynote speakers for the 2018 CGBCR conference are:

  • Giuseppe Bertola (Torino)

  • Eric Leeper (Indiana)
  • Tommaso Monacelli (Bocconi)  
  • Stephanie Schmitt-Grohé (Columbia)

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. The call for paper for The Manchester School will be announced after registration has closed.
