Last Tuesday and Friday, I was in the Laboratoire d’Economie d’Orléans (LEO), the Economics department of the University of Orléans (France). I attended an international conference untitled: “Environmental Economics: A Focus on Natural Resources”. The conference program is available here: https://sites.google.com/view/eenr-orleans/program.
I presented the new version of the real business cycle model we have been working on with Gauthier Vermandel. This model aims at investigating the short run effects of weather shocks on business cycles as well as the potential long run effects of climate change on macroeconomic volatility and welfare. The working paper is available on RePEc : Weather Shocks, Climate Change and Business Cycles.
The slides from my presentation are available below.
