Workshop
This year's theme is centred on the Dynamics of Growth, Inequality and Technological Change: Micro and Macro Perspectives. In the last two decades, economic systems have experienced unprecedented changes. The upsurge of emergent markets and technologies, the increasing sophistication of financial markets and trade, a rising fragmentation of the global division of labor, and the growth of inequality have changed the way economies work and evolve. In such a scenario, the 2007 economic crisis has proved to have had a great impact on these transformations, showing at the same time system unexpected fragility. The study of such phenomena – both at micro and macro level – asks for new evidence, sounder theoretical underpinnings, and reliable statistical techniques. IWcee17 aims to provide a rigorous scientific discussion about the evolution and performance of socio-economic systems in the light of the tools offered by modern quantitative socio-economic science.

Papers on the following topics are highly welcome:

  • Theoretical, empirical and computational models of growth, inequality and technological change;
  •  Propagation mechanisms in interrelated systems; New evidence and indicators of inequality;
  •  Network (including input-output tables) dynamics and resilience; Agent-based and game-theory modelling;
  •  Risk and uncertainty analysis; Modelling of financial systems;
  •  Time series analysis and forecasting techniques;
  •  Micro and macro models of technical change; Policy evaluation;
  • Big Data analysis;

 

The best papers presented at the workshop will be published in a Special Issue of The International Journal of Computational Economics and Econometrics (IJCEE)
