The Research Network Macroeconomics and Macroeconomic Policies (FMM) organises its 13th conference on ‘The World Economy in Crisis - The Return of Keynesianism?' The submission of papers in the following areas is encouraged: Global imbalances and the current crisis; financial crisis, real crisis and the risks of depression and deflation; paradigm shift in macroeconomics - the return of Keynesianism?; economic policy reactions and the future relationship between the market and the state; regulation of the financial sector from a Keynesian perspective; and perspectives for a Keynesian New Deal. For the open part of the conference the submission of papers on the general subject of the Research Network is encouraged as well. We also ask for the submission of papers for graduate student sessions, on the specific subject of this conference or on the general subject of the Research Network. Conference language is English. Selected papers will be published after the conference. The deadline for paper proposals is 30 June 2009.
