Stanford Economics is proud to host its annual Stanford Institute for Theoretical Economics (SITE) Conference from July 1 to September 11 2024. SITE sponsors sessions that encompass both economic theory and empirical work and cover a broad range of topics. It brings together established and emerging scholars to present leading-edge economic research, to educate, and to collaborate.

This session will cover recent work on the causes and effects of changes in volatility and uncertainty in the aggregate economy, which is incredibly topical given the COVID, Monetary and Ukraine volatility and now Middle East situation. Indeed, the most cited economics paper in the last 5-years is on measuring uncertainty and its impact on the US economy. This session will focus on measuring changes in uncertainty, evaluating its impact on the US and global economy, and discussing policy responses. The mix of academics and policy makers – with co-funding from the San Francisco Fed – across multiple institutions reflects this broad interest. The session will aim to include about 20 recent papers on these topics, with as in prior years a mix of theoretical and empirical papers, junior and senior presenters, and gender and demographic mix.


Deadline for paper submission is June 1, 2024.
Papers Submission via this website.
