Call for Papers

Labor Market Dynamics: Drivers and Consequences

Organizers: Mariacristina De Nardi, Ayşegül Şahin, Gianluca Violante

The Carnegie-Rochester-NYU Conference on Public Policy is now soliciting papers for a conference on “Labor Market Dynamics: Drivers and Consequences.” The conference will be held at New York University on April 26-27, 2024. Accepted papers and comments will be published in the January 2025 issue of the Journal of Monetary Economics.

This conference aims at putting together a set of papers that analyze the drivers and consequences of labor market dynamics from the perspective of workers and households. We are interested in papers that study the role of household structure and changing family composition, health, human capital, subjective expectations, and their macroeconomic consequences and policy implications.

We encourage submissions covering a wide range of related topics, as well as using new data (such as subjective expectations) and methods (both empirical and theoretical).

These topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Labor supply, participation, and self-employment
  • Health and human capital
  • Household structure, home production, and children
  • Location and co-location decisions
  • Demographic changes
  • Job loss and unemployment
  • Disparities in labor market outcomes and human capital
  • Interaction of secular trends with business cycle fluctuations

The editors invite detailed abstracts of no more than two pages describing the proposed research paper. If a preliminary version of the paper is available, authors may include it with their abstract. Proposals should be submitted through this link no later than 11:59 p.m. EST on September 24, 2023. The attached pdf file should be named using the lead author’s surname.

The editors, in collaboration with the Carnegie-Rochester-NYU Advisory Board, will make the final selection of papers to be included in the Conference. Authors will be notified by November 13, 2023 if their paper has been selected. The papers should represent original research not published elsewhere. Since the papers are intended for publication, authors will not be able to publish or reprint the work elsewhere without the permission of the editors and publisher. Please note that the editors will contact authors only if their paper is accepted.
