International Workshop

Optimal Timing and Control to Eradicate Firms’ Polluting Activities: The Roles of Fiscal and Monetary Policies


 

The Department of Economics, Society, Politics (DESP) of the University of Urbino Carlo Bo welcomes paper submissions for the International Workshop “Optimal Timing and Control to Eradicate Firms’ Polluting Activities: The Roles of Fiscal and Monetary Policies” to be held in Urbino on June 3-4, 2024.

This specialized workshop on non-linear macroeconomic dynamics applied to environmental issues follows previous conferences and workshops organized in Urbino on non-linear economic dynamics and policies. The workshop aims to bring interaction among economists and social scientists who carry out research at the knowledge frontier under the premise that monetary and fiscal policies analyzed through non-linear macroeconomics are essential to confront climate change. As a global issue, fiscal and monetary policies to mitigate climate change require cooperative and coordinated actions at the international level, including addressing the fair distribution of economic and social costs between countries/economies and supporting the firms’ green productive transition. While governments’ fiscal policy introducing a global carbon tax remains an open topic, a growing number of academics and policymakers are exploring the potential contribution that central banks and financial regulators can make to reducing carbon emissions, i.e., the role of monetary policies in addressing climate change. Therefore, fiscal and monetary policies play critical roles in the sustainability of firms’ productive activities.

Keynote speakers:

  • William A. Barnett (online participation), Oswald Distinguished Professor of Macroeconomics, Department of Economics, University of Kansas | and Center for Financial Stability, NY City, USA.
  • Francesco Drudi, Principal Advisor at the Directorate General Monetary Policy, European Central Bank (ECB).

A Special Issue of the journal Macroeconomic Dynamics (MD), is devoted to the workshop. The MD special issue invites contributions on behavioral macroeconomics, dynamic games and firms’ behavior, banking policies, monetary and fiscal policies, and in general related topics on non-linear macroeconomic dynamics in environmental issues. The contributions we aim to receive will not only share general substantive interests in the dynamics of ecological economics at the level of firm behavior, but will also use an important method that we support, that is non-linear dynamic modeling in macroeconomics. Potential research articles may therefore involve an effort to take genuinely the strategic foundations of the macroeconomic models used to study the topics under consideration of this SI. The open special issue may publish frontier-of-knowledge research articles on potential topics in environmental economics, such as (but not limited to):

  • Banking and Finance
  • Behavioral Macroeconomics
  • Climateflation, Fossilflation, and Greenflation
  • Computation and Simulation Methods in Climate Change
  • Corruption and Greenwashing
  • Environmental Fiscal/Monetary Policies
  • Environmental Poverty Traps
  • Economic Growth and Green Investment
  • Dynamic Games and Ecological Economics
  • Firm Behavior and Environmental Macroeconomics
  • Green Transition Costs
  • Industrial and Environmental Policy Analysis
  • International Economics
  • Money, Inflation, and Climate Change
  • Non-linear Macroeconomic Dynamics

 

Special Issue Timeline:

The special issue is open for submissions starting from: to be announced.

The deadline for submissions is: to be announced.

Submissions must be made through the journal’s online submission platform, ScholarOne here. When submitting, please specify the special issue: Optimal Timing and Control to Eradicate Firms’ Polluting Activities: The Roles of Fiscal and Monetary Policies
