The EAYE organized, in collaboration with the Leipzig University, the 1st thematic EAYE Workshop at the Leipzig University on September 10-11, 2018.
Since the Great Recession, research on housing and macroeconomics has become a highly relevant and vibrant research field within macroeconomics. What drives house-price fluctuations? How do pronounced fluctuations in house prices and housing credit affect the real economy? What explains the long run dynamics of house prices? What are the macroeconomic consequences of regulations in the housing market and in housing finance? The aim of the workshop is to bring together young economists, as well as a few distinguished senior researchers, that work on these pressing questions and on housing and macroeconomics in general. The keynote lectures were given by Alberto Martín (ECB, CREI, Barcelona GSE) and Moritz Kuhn (University of Bonn, CEPR, IZA).
