At the Italian Treasury the workshop "Stock-Flow Consistent Models for Macroeconomic Policy"
The workshop "Stock-Flow Consistent Models for Macroeconomic Policy" took place at the Italian Treasury, on Wednesday 15 June. The event was organized by the Directorate I - Economic-Financial Analysis and Research, with the contribution of the Economics Foundation “Tor Vergata” - "Riccardo Faini" Observatory. The workshop was pivoted on the presentation of two contributions. The first was the ITFIN econometric model for the Italian economy, developed by the Directorate I at the Italian Treasury in recent years, with the support of Sogei. The main characteristics of this model stand in a strong focus on the financial and banking system and an emphasis on the macroeconomic consequences of sovereign risk. The second model was developed in France by the l’Agence Française de Développement.
Speakers included the Director General for Economic-Financial Analysis and Research of the Department of the Treasury (Directorate I), Riccardo Barbieri Hermitte, Antoine Godin of the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Stephen Burgess, economist of the Bank of England, and Fabrizio Mattesini, Professor of Economics at the Department of Economics and Finance of the University “Tor Vergata”. The event was held in hybrid format.
