Prof. Belke Organizer of an international Jean Monnet Workshop on „Current Account (Im-)Balances – Determinants and Policy Implications“
From October 24 to 26, 2019, the University of Duisburg-Essen, the University of Greifswald and the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), Brussels, will organize a Jean Monnet Workshop on „Current Account (Im-)Balances of the Euro Area and within the Euro Area Member Countries - Determinants and Policy Implications“, hosted by the Centre for European Policy Studies, Brussels.
Current account (im-)balances played a central role during the financial crisis. The large deficits of a number of euro area countries (in the South and the East) were widely considered unsustainable (at their peak often more than 10 % of GDP). But they have been largely corrected now. The swing of the so-called periphery from deficit to surplus has not been accompanied by a mirror movement of the core as the large surpluses of Germany and some of its neighbours (NL, DK, AT, etc.) continue unabated.
Questions to be addressed are the following: how can one explain large swings in current accounts in one group, but essentially no change in another group with close economic links? Why did some other countries, not part of or linked to the euro (e.g. Sweden, Switzerland) also run persistent surpluses?
It is often argued that the persistence of the German (and other core countries) surpluses made the adjustment more difficult for the rest of the euro area. Can this be quantified? What policy actions could the governments of the surplus core countries have undertaken to reduce their surpluses?
Please submit your paper or extended abstract by April 30th, 2019, via E-Mail to email@example.com. Preference will be given to full papers.
Authors will be informed about acceptance by May 30th, 2019.
Selected, excellent papers will be considered for a special issue in Journal of International Money and Finance on "Current Account (Im-)Balances of the Euro Area and within the Euro Area Member Countries - Determinants and Policy Implications". Those papers will be subject to additional double blinded peer review.
