BPEA Fall 2021 conference

Presented by The Brookings Institution

Past Event

The Brookings Papers on Economic Activity (BPEA) is a semi-annual academic conference and journal that pairs rigorous research with real-time policy analysis to address the most urgent economic challenges of the day.

The Fall 2021 BPEA conference was a one-day, virtual event on Thursday, September 9, hosted by Brookings’s Economic Studies program. While BPEA conferences are usually small, invitation-only gatherings, the Brookings Institution opened its proceedings to anyone who wished to observe the vanguard of economic thought around global economic issues.
