The Money Macro and Finance Research Group is a study group which exists to promote and disseminate economic research in these fields of study, primarily in the UK. The group was founded in 1969 as the Money Study Group and quickly established itself as a key national forum for monetary economists in the UK.
It was the first of the study groups to be funded by the Social Science Research Council. It has broadened its focus and its label - The Money, Macro and Finance Research Group - reflects this. Membership is open to all interested parties in the UK and around the world

PhD Workshop, University of Birmingham, 18th and 19th April 2016
Together with colleagues at the University of Birmingham and the Bank of England, the Money Macro and Finance Research Group are organising the third annual workshop for UK-based PhD students in the broad fields of money, macro and finance, following the successes of the inaugural conference at Warwick in 2014 and the second conference at York in 2015. The main objective of the workshop is to provide advanced PhD economists with an opportunity to present their research to their peers and leading researchers in the field in order to obtain feedback and practice the presentation of their key research ideas. An added bonus is that it allows for some early dissemination of these ideas across the research and policy-making community. As well as senior academics, the conference will be attended by economists from the Bank of England and H M Treasury.
We invite submissions of complete papers from PhD students who are registered for their research degree at UK institutions of higher education. Suitable topics include, but are not confined to, macroeconomic theory, open economy macroeconomics, monetary economics, macroeconometrics, finance, banking and economic and financial history. Attendees should note that they may be asked to discuss a paper. The costs of attendance at the conference (including dinner and overnight accommodation, if required, on the evening of the 18th) and reasonable travel costs will be met by the sponsors. Please note that, as in previous years, authors of submitted papers which are not accepted will be invited to attend the conference.
