Macro Minutes
Facilitated by Assistant Professor of Economics Brian Dombeck

June 2nd - August 25th, 2020
Weekly on Tuesdays, 12 - 1 p.m. (PDT)
Virtual Meeting
No cost to attend

This group will review the latest macroeconomic data releases and literature and attempt to put it into context. The format will be a largely discussion-type gathering consisting of multiple individual participants presenting.

The primary goal of this gathering is to provide an opportunity for participants interested in topics broadly related to macroeconomics to discuss both “what is” and “what might be” by reviewing data released in the previous week, looking ahead to what data will be released in the coming week, and discussing new NBER working papers as well as peer-reviewed publications in more accessible journals such as the Journal of Economic Perspectives. As a part of this work, the group might produce deliverables to the broader L&C community summarizing the discussions in the form of a monthly e-newsletter and a weekly podcast. There will also be a “Book of the Month” component.

Note: No prior experience is assumed or required, and all - including non L&C guests such as family and friends - are welcome.
