The Axel Leijonhufvud Trento Summer School

The 20th edition of the Axel Leijonhufvud Trento Summer School taking place from 3-14 June, 2019. Given INET's heavy involvement in this year's summer school, we highly encourage applications from members of YSI. The application window is open until 15 April. Please find further details below.

  • Aims and Scope: Macroeconomic analysis finds itself in an unsettled state. While the international evidence provides vivid instances of the limits of the self-regulating capacities of economic systems, much of the literature keeps relying on schemes where disturbances are rationalized as consequences of extraneous shocks or postulated frictions. Still, the field has also shown a search for better arguments and representations. The 2019 School will explore, without prejudices, a diverse set of analytical alternatives that have been proposed to narrow down the gap between macro theory and the phenomena that motivate interest in the subject.
