CES ifo Venice Summer Institute 2018: Expectation Formation

June 8-9, 2018

Expectations play a key role in any economic model of decision-making under uncertainty. This workshop aims to bring together researchers from different fields of economics to better understand how individuals form expectations, how they update their expectations after receiving new information, how individuals' expectations translate into their spending, saving and investment decisions and the resulting implications for macroeconomics and asset pricing, as well as the policy recommendations based on such models. Keynote speakers are Nicola Gennaioli (Bocconi) and Stefan Nagel (University of Chicago Booth School of Business).
