WORKSHOP ON FISCAL POLICY AND MICROSIMULATION
Valencia, Spain, 25th January 2018
The literature on fiscal policy evaluation has been steadily growing in recent years in relation to both the impact of such policies on economic growth and on distributional issues in developed countries. The integration of the explanatory potential of macro and microsimulation models to evaluate the impact of fiscal policies is a key research topic. In general, the main aim of these analyses is to serve as a guide for public policy design.
Aiming to provide an opportunity to bring together relevant research work in the field of fiscal policy evaluation, both from the micro and macro traditions, we are pleased to announce a specialized Workshop “Fiscal Policy and Microsimulation” that will take place on 25 January 2018 in Valencia (Spain). The Workshop will combine relevant keynote speakers with contributed papers. The Workshop will run in parallel to the “25th Meeting of Public Economics”, a 2-day general-purpose conference focused on public economics (in Spanish).
Contributed papers topics may focus on any of the following main areas of research:
• Fiscal policy evaluation
• Fiscal policy and economic growth
• Ex-ante and ex-post effects of tax reforms
• Tax policies
• Redistributive effects of fiscal policy
• Microsimulation tools
• Macroeconomics dynamics and fiscal policy
• Applied welfare analysis
• The political economy of tax and spending reforms
Full papers should be in English and be submitted by 10 October 2017 electronically through Conference Maker, to the corresponding session.
