RCEF 2012: Cities, Open Economies, and Public Policy

The Rimini Conference in Economics and Finance (RCEF) is a biennial conference series that alternates between Italy and Canada, but with a different focus each time. This year’s theme will draw researchers from urban economics, with a micro focus on long run development, trade, and increasingly the environment and from international macroeconomics with a focus on business cycles, financial markets, and monetary policy. Intersecting these two fields will be researchers on public policy, that is, economists who study the levers that national governments typically wield: taxes, transfers, education, and labor mobility (migration and immigration). We also invite papers in other areas of economics, including general equilibrium, industrial organization, and quantitative methods.

The conference is organized by Canadian and Italian economists under the sponsorship of the Rimini Centre for Economic Analysis (RCEA) but invites scientific contributions from all over the world. 

Anyone who plans to attend the conference must make a conference payment no later than July 30, 2012.
