 9th RCEA Macro-Money-Finance Workshop

Monetary and Fiscal Policy in the Next Recession

June 23-24, Balsillie School of International Affairs, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada


Keynote Speakers

Laurence M. Ball

Johns Hopkins University and NBER

Angelo Melino

University of Toronto, RCEA and C.D.Howe Institute

The current macroeconomic situation will make it more difficult than ever for policymakers to stimulate economies in the next recession.  Policy interest rates cannot be reduced much  since they are at record lows; public debt is, in most countries, at record high, and the new US administration is promising to roll back some of macroprudential reforms introduced in the wake of the Great Recession. The current situation makes dealing with the next recession a formidable challenge. The goal of the workshop is to discuss what can be done to prepare for the next cyclical downturn, and what to do when the next recession starts, as it inevitably will.

Two Dynamic Paths on a Shared Road:

Canadian-Italian Cooperation at 150 and 156

June 17, Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Toronto, Ontario, Canada


Keynote Speakers

Luigi Bruti-Liberati

Università degli Studi di Milano

Kenneth Bartlett

University of Toronto

The conference is organized on the occasion of Canada’s sesquicentennial,  with the support of the Consulate General of Italy in Toronto and Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Toronto.

Unlike other RCEA meetings, this is an interdisciplinary conference, which will include participants from social sciences and humanities. It has two goals. The first is to celebrate 150 years of Canada and the contribution of Italian-Canadians to Canada’s economic, political, social and cultural development. The second goal is to bring together academics and policymakers from both countries to spur cooperation between Canada and Italy. Canada’s sesquicentennial year, coming only a few years after Italy’s 150th anniversary as a unified state, provides a timely opportunity to strengthen these historic bonds.
