Call for papers for the 2021 Franco-German Fiscal Policy Seminar
The French Ministry for the Economy and Finance is pleased to announce the call for papers for the 2021 Franco-German Fiscal Policy Seminar (FPS), which will take place in Paris on 9-10 November 2021.
This annual Seminar aims to bridge the gap between academic research and policy-making. This year’s topic is:
“One year through the COVID-19 crisis”
Keynote speaker: Antonio Fatás (INSEAD, CEPR and ABFER).
More than one year after the start of the pandemic, the global economy is recovering at unequal pace, while health and economic uncertainties are still weighing. The aim of the 2021 Franco-German Fiscal Policy Seminar is to present cutting-edge academic work that can contribute to our understanding of the economic mechanisms at work during and especially after the pandemic, to inform policymakers about appropriate responses, and to allow for laying the foundations for more resilient economies in a post-pandemic world. An additional goal of the FPS is to identify new questions for research and policy-making.
We are especially interested in submissions covering topics that include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following issues:
- The scarring effects of COVID-19 on households, firms and productivity
- Risk, resilience, and recalibration in global value chains in a post Covid World
- Unemployment, labor reallocations and labor policies after COVID-19
- Impact of the pandemic on income, wealth, intergenerational and gender inequalities
- Post-Covid-19 exit strategies from massive short-term public support
- Inflation dynamics and the appropriate policy mix after the pandemic
- Reassessing macroeconomic, fiscal and monetary policy, and their interactions
- Strengthening the resilience of the EMU to future shocks
- The consequences of public and private debt overhang
Both theoretical and empirical submissions are welcome. We invite papers in English to be submitted by 30 June 2021 to: francogerman-seminar@dgtresor.
Travel and hotel expenses of the invited speakers (1 per select paper) will be covered by the French Ministry for the Economy and Finance according to economy fares.
