Climate Change: Implications for Macroeconomics

On May 13, 2022 Climate Impact Lab co-director Sol Hsiang will participate in a symposium hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York on "Climate Change: Implications for Macroeconomics". The goal of the Symposium, which is organized by the Applied Macroeconomics and Econometrics Center of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, is to stimulate a thought-provoking debate on the topic of climate change and its implications for the macroeconomy. The Symposium will bring together both academics and policymakers to discuss four key topics: the implications of climate change for monetary policy; labor and capital reallocation due to climate change and associated policies; climate change, trade, and global production; and climate uncertainty, financial markets, and the natural rate of interest. Since research on many of these topics is still nascent, panelists will explore the key questions, ideas, and fruitful research avenues in this important field.
