NIP/PEG/TAG/IEN/Finance Camps/ RIN
and Economic Camps
The Lacea Workshop in
International Economics and Finance at Universidad Torcuato Di
Tella meets every August and is organized by the Department of
Economics at UTDT. The Summer Camp is part of the annual
activities of the Department of Economics at Universidad Torcuato
Di Tella. It is an unique event that brings together top
researchers, financiers, and policymakers from the North and the
South to discuss recent theoretical and empirical advances in
International Finance, with special emphasis on recent crises and
macroeconomic issues relevant to Latin American countries. One key
advantage of holding these Camps in the South is that they
facilitate the participation of policymakers that are directly
dealing with these problems. We are hoping that over the years
this type of intellectual exercise will help to identify key
issues, and induce influential researchers to devote their
energies to a better understanding of the region economic
problems. This type of policy oriented research should eventually
result in economic policies in the north and the south that will
prevent crises, induce macroeconomic stability, and foster growth.
The success of the event is
evidenced by the publication of the papers presented in the
workshop in major academic journals. Its impact on the debate
about public policy is reflected in the participation of
influential policy makers and press extensive coverage.
The XI Workshop in International Economics and Finance will take place in Montevideo on March 12-15, 2009. The program will be posted in the workshop's web site,www.utdt.edu/ief-workshop, by January 12, 2009.
