California Macroeconomics Conference

5th California Macroeconomics Conference
Friday, October 29, 2021

The Lowe Institute of Political Economy at Claremont McKenna College cordially invites paper submissions for the 5th Annual California Macroeconomics Conference (CMC) to be held on Friday, October 29. We anticipate holding an in-person conference at the Claremont Colleges, but the final format of the conference will depend on the health situation come October.

We encourage paper submissions in all areas of macroeconomics and we invite submissions from faculty and graduate students from all colleges, universities, and research organizations. The conference will consist of up to six selected papers, and funding will be provided for up to three graduate students. The previous conference program can be accessed here: 2019 Program.
