Call for papers: Research In Experimental Economics, Volume 17
Experiments in Macroeconomics
Volume editor: John Duffy, University of Pittsburgh
This edited book is scheduled as volume 17 of the series, Research in Experimental Economics, Emerald Group Publishing and is to appear in 2014. The REE series of edited research volumes was first published in 1979 with founding editor Vernon L. Smith. The current senior editors are R. Mark Isaac and Douglas A. Norton of Florida State University.
About the new volume
Macroeconomic models have traditionally been evaluated using non-experimental field data. However, the assumptions and predictions of many modern micro-founded macroeconomic models can also be tested using the methodology of controlled laboratory or field experimentation which often allows for better causal inference. This volume will be the first to collect papers from researchers using the experimental methodology to address macroeconomic topics and policy issues.
As usual, REE papers will be externally reviewed. Unlike some journals, we welcome papers that are interdisciplinary, that focus on replication and robustness studies or that present extensive data analysis. Different types of papers – laboratory experiments, field experiments, and theoretical papers with implications for experimentation – will be considered. Within this framework, possible topics to address include, but are not limited t
Intertemporal consumption and savings decisions.
Coordination problems and equilibrium selection
Expectation formation and learning
Institutions and economic growth.
Fiscal or monetary policy issues
Topics involving money, credit or banking
Labor markets and (un)employment.
Interested authors are encouraged to contact the volume editor as soon as possible. For full consideration, completed manuscripts must be received by November 1, 2013. Space for inclusion in this volume is limited.
