Overview

The distinguished International Seminar on Macroeconomics has met annually in Europe for thirty years. The papers in the 2007 volume discuss interest-setting and central bank transparency; expectations, monetary policy, and traded good prices; public investment and the golden rule; the role of institutions, confidence, and trust in financial integration within EU countries; international portfolios with supply, demand, and redistributive shocks; transmission and stabilization in closed and open economies; capital flows and asset prices; and welfare implications of financial globalization without financial development. The 2008 papers discuss the employment effects of workweek regulation in France; trade pricing effects of the Euro; reflections on monetary policy in the open economy; firm-size distribution and cross-country income differences; and exchange rates and the margin of trade.
