The world economy has undergone profound structural changes in recent decades because of increasing real and financial globalisation. Increased trade and the internationalisation of production with the establishment of long supply chains, together with the emergence of global banks, pose new challenges for our understanding of interdependence across countries and the making of economic policy.
The Bank of England, Centre for Macroeconomics, and CEPR are jointly organising a two day workshop focusing on these and related issues. Please see the link to the call for papers for further details and instructions on how to apply.
