Must-Attend: George Evans, Roger Guesnerie, Bruce McGough and Bruce Preston: content/uploads/sites/4/2015/08/ConfProgram-2015.pdf”>Expectations in Dynamic Macroeconomic Models
Must-Attend (if you are in Oregon, that is): Up in Eugene they have long been doing a great deal of work on expectations and the stability of stochastic equilibrium that is genuinely useful. And have I ever said that I was first taught about equilibrium stability by Roger Guesnerie in the fall of 1979? There are probably smart things I could use to impress people in my Econ 2001a notes, if I could find the basement box that they are in. Mark Thoma tells us about:
