6th Joint French Macro Workshop –June 5, 2014, Paris

Pierre-Olivier Weil  (PSE) and my colleague Christian Hellwig from TSE organized the  7th Joint French Macro Workshop. The workshop was (almost)  as usual held in the Banque de France.

This series of workshop is jointly organized by CREST/Polytechnique, the Paris School of Economics, SciencesPo and the Toulouse School of Economics; with the financial and logistic support of the Fondation Banque de France pour la recherche en économie.
