2017 Princeton Initiative
The 2017 edition of the Princeton Initiative will take place from September 8-10, 2017. This initiative brings together 2nd year Ph.D. students who wish to write a Ph.D. thesis at the intersections between Macroeconomics and Finance. The recent experience starting with the run-up of imbalances and bubbles in the first decade of the 21st century, followed by a severe financial crisis that ultimately led to the Great Recession, calls for new frameworks to study macro-prudential policy tools and to design a new international financial architecture. The aim of this meeting is to bridge the gap between modern finance and macroeconomics and expose the best students from across the country to macroeconomic models with financial frictions and /or non-standard expectations.

The Princeton Initiative is organized by the Bendheim Center for Financed and co-sponsored by the Julis-Rabinowitz Center for Public Policy and Finance and the Princeton Economics Department.
