Why Rebuild Macroeconomics?

Is macroeconomics in crisis? There is little consensus between economists on the causes of the crisis and the subsequent loss of productivity growth. The standard answers of deregulation and greater integration no longer seem to resonate with the public. Is it time for a radical rethink about macroeconomics? As Director of a four-year ESRC network on Rebuilding Macroeconomics, Dr Armstrong will explain some of the very latest lines of enquiry being developed within the network.
