Workshop Bayesian Economic Forecasting and Policy Analysis

Date: Friday, 19 June 2015

Workshop Program

In this workshop different approaches to the implementation of Bayesian analysis for interesting problems in different areas of economics will be treated at a high and innovative level. We think about work in macroeconomics, microeconomics (eg. treatment effects), and also in the area of marketing where decision making plays an important role. At this one day conference, held at the Econometric and Tinbergen Institute of Erasmus School of Economics, this topic will be discussed and analyzed by a group of leading international researchers in the field. The conference is held at the end of the Annual Econometric and Tinbergen Institute Lectures, sponsored by Princeton University Press. The workshop is intended as a meeting place for theoretical and applied researchers in academia and professional organizations who work on the theme of the conference.
