Keynesian Economics Debate Group

Dear all,

We invite to submit your work to the new edition of the Keynesian Economics Debate Group (KEDG). Here follows the call:

"Do you want to share your ongoing research with some YSI colleagues, give and receive feedback? Join us in the Keynesian Economics Debate Group!

In 2020, the Keynesian Economics Working Group created a debate group to allow young scholars to present and receive feedback from other students for ongoing work. This is the fourth edition of this project that has been a great opportunity for interaction and exchange of ideas in a relaxed atmosphere. The idea is to have monthly online meetings starting in May, with one presenter and one discussant per meeting.

The previous editions were a huge success, especially in the context of social distancing. The monthly meetings were a great way to stay in touch with the YSI community and to keep motivated with our own current work during these difficult times. We are now launching a new edition and look forward to welcoming new participants!


We invite students in the area of Keynesian macroeconomics, in the broadest sense, to apply. Here are some examples, although applications do not need to be restricted by these:

Income and wealth distribution
Political economy
Macroeconomic policies
Monetary and fiscal policy
Stock-Flow Consistent, agent-based macroeconomic models, and other Numerical Methods and Simulations
Open economy issues and international trade
Structural change and economic cycles
Ecological economics
Submissions must describe the ongoing work to be discussed (through an abstract or a more broad description). This work can be a paper, a research project, a part of the thesis/dissertation… the list goes on. The actual work will be requested before the presentation.

Submission deadline: March, 31st."
