The RCEA Colloquium 2019
RCEA Growth, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Conference
September 20-21, 2019, Lazaridis School of Business and Economics, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
John Haltiwanger (University of Maryland, College Park, NBER and IZA)
Josh Lerner (Harvard Business School and NBER)
With recent slowdown in economic growth, innovation and enterprneurship became one of the leading areas of economic and management research. Growth results from the effort of innovative entrepreneurs, with new technologies replacing old ones. This trend is expected to accelerate with adoption of artificial intelligence, robotics and machine learning. The goal of the conference is to bring together leading researchers and policymakers to discuss and contribute to the understanding of issues related to economic growth, innovation and entrepreneurship. We welcome theoretical, empirical and policy – oriented papers in all areas of economics and finance related to the overarching theme of the conference.
10th RCEA Macro-Money-Finance Conference. Is a Recession Coming?
September 13-14, 2019, Balsillie School of International Affairs, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
Emmanuel Farhi (Harvard University, NBER and CEPR)
Enrique Mendoza (University of Pennsylvania and NBER)
The current macroeconomic situation indicates a growing possibility of the next recession. Economic growth has slowed down in Europe and China and is likely to slow down in the US once the stimulative effect of tax cuts passes. Combined with tariff war between US and China, erratic economic policies in some countries and financial markets volatility, a recession in the next two years is more likely than it appeared to be a year ago. The current situation makes dealing with the next recession a formidable challenge: interest rates are low, public debts are high and some macroprudential reforms introduced in the wake of the Great Recession have been rolled back.
The goal of the conference is to assemble a group of leading researchers in macroeconomics, monetary economics and finance to present and discuss their recent work. While the focus of the conference is on theoretical and empirical work related to macro prospects, we welcome papers in all areas of economics and finance related to the overarching theme of the conference.

His contributions were fundamental to the RCEA’s launch and its subsequent success. Ramo organized and managed the RCEA financial study group. He was an agent of continuous inspiration, commitment and enthusiasm. He understood and personified RCEA’s spirit of intellectual independence and informal, but earnest scholarship. Istanbul Bilgi University organized a conference in honor of Ramo. He was appointed as the head of a finance institute at Bilgi University and he had many friends and collaborators there. Ramo will be greatly missed and will remain an inspiration to the colleagues and students who had the good fortune of meeting him.
