Conference at the Bank of England

Last year I co-organize d a highly successful conference at the Bank of England on Economics and Psychology. You can find links to videos from most of the conference presenters here. This year I am co-organizing a second conference with the title, "Economics and Psychology: New Ways of Thinking about economic policy". The conference will take place on Monday July 9th and Tuesday July 10th. We have a tremendous line-up of papers with topics ranging from economic theory, economic and psychology experiments to behavioral economics and economic policy.

The conference will open with a keynote address from Seppo Honkapohja, former Deputy Governor of the Bank of Finland and closed by Vítor Constâncio, former Deputy Governor of the ECB. It promises to be an exciting event.  There is a limited number of spots for non-participants so, if you would like to attend, please send an email to Michelle Scott at the Bank of England. We welcome requests from academics, journalists and particularly from graduate students in economics and psychology. Space is limited so please don't wait too long to apply.

I am especially grateful to the Economics Department at the University of Warwick, the Bank of England, the Centre for Macroeconomics and the National Institute of Economics and Social Research for supporting both conferences.
