First RCEA-Panel on 

Predictability in Science and Society

 

Thursday, 26 January 2023

 

Online on zoom (EU: 5 pm - 7 pm CET, Milan; US: 8 am - 10 am PST, Riverside)

 

 

RCEA is organizing an interdisciplinary colloquium on predictability in the Natural and Social Sciences with prominent researchers from various disciplines.  Even in their more quantifiable disciplines, such as Economics, Social Sciences have always struggled with experimentation, measurement, and predictability limitations. Lucas (1977), in the wake of Frisch (1938) and Marschak (1953), elaborated on the inherent difficulties in identifying structural relationships. Such challenges have marred economic policy analysis, which requires structure invariance under potential interventions. Physics (more generally, Natural Sciences) may be converging toward an impasse that has slowed progress in the Social Sciences: "During the last few decades, our view upon matter, the fundamental forces, and the geometry of spacetime have undergone a metamorphosis, enabling us to extrapolate our knowledge towards time- and distance scales that in fact cannot be directly probed by experiment." (Gerard t ‘Hooft, 2001). The impossibility of experimentation, measurement, and predictability could obstruct scientific progress and open epistemological precipices. 


The First Panel features keynote speeches by Nancy Cartwright (Durham University and University of California San Diego), David F. Hendry (Oxford University), and Carlo Rovelli (Aix-Marseille University). Chair: Paolo Giordani (Norwegian Business School, RCEA).

 

Organizers: Karim Abadir (Imperial College London, RCEA), Marcelle Chauvet (University of California-Riverside, RCEA), Paolo Giordani (Norwegian Business School, RCEA), Claudio Morana (University of Milano-Bicocca, RCEA) Gianluigi Pelloni (RCEA).

RCEA-Europe International Conference on

Global Threats to the World Economy

A crowdfunding online conference to support Ukrainian students


2-3 February 2023

 

Due to the pandemic shock, inflation has returned. The energy crisis triggered by Russia's war in Ukraine has added further price pressure, particularly in Europe, leading to double-digit inflation rates in many advanced countries. Short-term inflationary pressure is mainly originating from energy markets, supply chains, and labor market developments. The risk of stagflation cum weakening financial markets hampers the implementation of disinflationary monetary policies, posing threats of financial disruptions stemming from interest rate hikes.  However, the inflationary outlook is also gloomy in the medium term, as most of the favorable supply-side developments during the Great Moderation are at risk of undoing due to de-globalization forces reducing international trade and technological, capital, and migratory flows. Climate change and environmental degradation pose further threats in terms of extreme weather disruptions to economic activity and harvests and the spread of new pandemic waves. Energy prices might be further subject to increases as the green transition appears to occur before the supply of renewable resources can adequately meet energy demand.

 

The conference's revenue will finance scholarships for Ukrainian students to enroll in the MSc programs in International Economics or Global Management at the University of Milano-Bicocca or similar programs at other European universities. Co-funding is a requirement for suitable institutions to compete for the allocation of the RCEA-Europe scholarships. Scholarships are awarded in collaboration with the Ukrainian Global University initiative at the Kyiv School of Economics

The European Union between crises to be faced and institutions to be reformed

Wednesday, 26 October 2022 

The dramatic situation caused by the Russian war in Ukraine, which came after two years of pandemic emergency, has confronted the European Union with an unexpected event once again in a very short period, full of unpredictable developments and uncertain consequences from many points of view. This crisis involves multiple aspects corresponding to the competence of legal, political, and economic disciplines. The workshop aims to reflect on how the European Union is reacting to this crisis and how the crisis itself could be an opportunity to transform its institutions and the political guidelines of the Member States. The workshop foresees two sessions. The morning session reflects on political and legal issues related to needed EU constitutional reforms. The afternoon session reflects on the current energy and inflation crises and its implication for economic policy management.  

This event is jointly organized by the Center for European Studies (CefES), the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, and the Rimini Centre for Economic Analysis (RCEA-Europe ETS).  Participation in the online workshop is free through zoom.
