ABOUT:

The Midwest Macroeconomics Group was founded by Mario Crucini, Gerhard Glomm and Ping Wang in 2011 to formalize an institutional structure of the Midwest Macroeconomics Conference, the first three of which were hosted by the founders at Michigan State University (1994), Ohio State University (1995) and Penn State University (1996), respectively. The goal of these meetings is to encourage frontier academic research in macroeconomics, broadly defined in terms of topics but rigorously grounded in economic theory and measurement. Historically conferences have been held once a year, in the spring, but the growth of the population of attendees has been so impressive that beginning in fall 2012, the group will meet twice a year, in the fall and spring. There are usually about 250 papers presented and roughly 300 people in attendance at each meeting. In the move to twice annual meetings we expect the meetings to draw about 150 papers and 175 attendees.
