The NY/Philadelphia Workshop on Quantitative Macroeconomics is a forum for the discussion of original research in dynamic macroeconomics with quantitative rigor and solid micro-foundation. Originally it was jointly sponsored by the Federal Reserve Banks of New York and Philadelphia, but the next meeting will be sponsored by Yeshiva University in New York. The workshop has covered a wide range of topics such as labor market policies, optimal taxation, social security, health insurance, demographic shift, life-cycle consumption and saving, dynamics of housing, etc. The workshop solicits papers to be presented at the workshop by mainly but not limited to researchers in the NY and Philadelphia area and chooses 5-6 papers in a highly selective setting. Each paper is assigned about one hour, which consists of presentations by the author and a discussant and general floor-wide discussion. This format of the workshop facilitates an in-depth interaction among participants and encourages extensive peer feedback on original research projects.
