Conference Piecing together a Paradigm

On October 19-22, 2016, at the Central European University in Budapest, the Institute for New Economic Thinking’s Young Scholars Initiative (YSI) will hold its first plenary, under the title “Piecing Together a Paradigm”.

YSI is a community of research-oriented students and young scholars that wants to embrace open debate and critical and self-reflective thinking in order to reach a better understanding of economic phenomena. The event will bring together 14 diverse YSI working groups — each searching for frameworks to guide their research — to place their work in a bigger picture, asking how the specific questions of each group fit together.

A session on replication in empirical research is organized by Jan H. Höffler who founded the ReplicationWiki at the University of Göttingen.

Invited guests include Lord Adair Turner, Jonathan Ostry, Geoffrey Hodgson, Perry Mehrling, Marc Lavoie, Philip Mirowski, Julie Nelson, Don Ross, Stephen Kinsella, Sanjay Reddy, Zoltan Poszar, Gary Dymski, Tiago Mata, Beatrice Cherrier, Alyssa Schneebaum, Margaret Schabas, Arturo O’Connell, Doyne Farmer, Robert Johnson and Thomas Ferguson.

The conference will also help to set the research agenda for YSI’s coming year and will include:

  • Comprehensive parallel working group meeting schedule for 15 working groups
  • High profile open sessions hosted by the working groups
  • Keynote addresses and big picture panels with leading economic thinkers
  • Community plenaries to set our overall agenda for the coming year
