The Bank of Lithuania is pleased to announce its 2nd Invited Lecture Series given by Kurt Mitman, Institute for International Economic Studies (IIES). The lecture’s topic is “Frontiers of Research on Inequality and the Macroeconomy: Facts, Methods and Policy Implications”. The present event was supposed to happen in 2021, however, due to unforeseen circumstances, it was postponed to this year. The lecture is intended for researchers, both from policy institutions and universities, as well as advanced doctoral students.
The two-day lectures will be followed by a one-day conference. We invite submissions of papers that are broadly related to the topic of the lecture.
