October, 6 2023: Frankfurt-Mannheim Macro Workshop
The Frankfurt-Mannheim Macro Workshop brings together researchers in quantitative macroeconomics from Goethe University in Frankfurt, the University of Mannheim, and other institutions in the region. One distinguishing feature of this workshop is its focus on presentations by junior scholars, which are then discussed by established researchers. This year, the workshop was sponsored by the MIIHD unit, and it had a special emphasis on family economics. The presentations covered various topics, including the role of protective labor laws for women, differential labor outcomes for singles and couples in equilibrium, household consumption and insurance in the context of health shocks, and the impact of cash transfers on fertility.
