The forum organises an annual international conference which takes place in Berlin in autumn. Since its first workshop, held in 1997, the FMM organises an annual international conference, which takes place in late October. It covers present debates on macroeconomic theories and issues. Parallel and plenary sessions build a platform for interchange among members and friends of the forum. Further the FMM’s focus on promoting young economists is reflected by the active participation in introductory lectures as well as in special parallel sessions. On this webpage we provide information on the next and documentations of past conferences including papers, slides and videos of introductory workshops and plenary sessions.

23rd FMM Conference : FMM Conference: The Euro at 20 – Macroeconomic Challenges

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the introduction of the Euro, replacing 11 national currencies. The two decades have been characterised by geographical extension to nowadays 19 countries, a modest increase in the Euro’s international role, but also by the build-up of unsustainable imbalances, and a long and deep economic and political crisis specific to many countries sharing the common currency. In response, substantial reforms have been undertaken without, though, resolving a number of key economic governance weaknesses.

22nd FMM Conference : 10 Years after the Crash: What have we learned?

In September 2008 the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers was a landmark in a series of events that triggered the great financial and economic crisis. However, its roots lie much deeper: rising inequality, deregulation of financial markets, private debt and trade imbalances are discussed to play a role. Ten years later, financial markets are again reaching record highs, the world economy grows at a strong pace and major central banks are beginning to tighten their monetary policy stance.

During three conference days more than 400 participants engaged in lively discussions with presenters of about 140 selected papers in parallel sessions and nine keynote presentations.
