category: conference workshop
On 9-10 October 2015 Research Institute for Economic Development (RIED) at Warsaw School of Economics (SGH) in cooperation with the CIRET/KOF Swiss Economic Institute - organized a two-day Workshop on Economic Cycles and Uncertainty.
recession, the crisis in the euro area and various (geo-) political tensions
have increased the interest in the effects of uncertainty on economic cycles.
How can uncertainty be measured? How does it affect the plans and decisions of
businesses and consumers? Especially investment and saving decisions might be
affected. Economic tendency surveys and surveys in general might be one
instrument to measure uncertainty and its influences. Submissions on these and
other topics broadly related to this special focus theme or to Economic Surveys
(and thereby the aims of CIRET in general) are welcomed.
