Structural Transformation and Macroeconomic Dynamics

The School of Economics would like to invite academic staff and postgraduate research students to participate in a workshop to be held at the University of Kent on 9-10 December 2016.

One of the most important trends in the development process is the massive transfer of productive resources from goods producing to services producing sectors. This structural transformation has wide-ranging consequences for the macroeconomy, labour markets, and inequality. This workshop, with the latest frontier research in the area, aims at developing a deep understanding of the consequences of structural transformation.

The full workshop programme can be found on our website:

Registration is open. Please submit your details using the online registration form.

Organisers: Miguel Leon-Ledesma (Kent) and Alessio Moro (Cagliari).

Sponsored by the Royal Economic Society and the Macroeconomics, Growth and History Centre (MaGHiC), University of Kent.
