The Minnesota Workshop in Macroeconomic Theory is a workshop on dynamic macroeconomic theory sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the University of Minnesota and the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. It is held on the campus of the University of Minnesota every summer in late July/early August.

The 2019 conference will last for three days, from Wednesday, July 31 through Friday, August 2. The schedule will be quite intense, with about 14 talks. There will also be ample time for informal discussion among the participants. We hope that all participants will stay the entire three days of the conference.

We welcome papers in a variety of areas. Examples of topics of interest include:

Asset Pricing from a General Equilibrium Perspective
Credit and Fluctuations
Demographic Evolution and its Economic Determinants
Depressions and Crises
Dynamics of the Income Distribution
Dynamics with Heterogeneous Agents
Dynamics of Housing
International Macroeconomics
International Trade and Geography
Labor Market Dynamics
Monetary and Fiscal Policy and Welfare
Politics and Growth
Technological Change, Organizations, and Growth


We welcome papers in other areas as well. The final topics will be determined in large part by the interests of the participants. While the title of the Workshop includes "Theory," empirical work guided by theory is more than welcome.
Please feel free to pass news of this conference on to other potentially interested people.
