UNSW Macro Lunch


Purpose


These bi-weekly meetings serve (at least) three purposes. First, allow everyone at UNSW interested in macro (broadly defined) to come together, discuss ideas, and learn from each other. Second, provide a platform for students (honors/masters/PhDs) to practice their presentation skills and get (early stage) feedback on their ideas. Third, allow faculty to discuss their own research.
