The Banque de France and Paris School of Economics are invite you to a lecture by Nicola Fuchs-Schündeln (Goethe University Frankfurt) organisée par la Chaire Macroéconomie internationale.

The conference will be held at the Banque de France and will be followed by a discussion with  Gilles Saint-Paul (PSE, École normale supérieure - PSL).

This lecture presents trends in hours worked in Europe and the US over the past four decades. It stresses the importance of the intensive margin of labor supply, i.e. hours worked per employed person, for the development of aggregate hours. Nicola Fuchs-Schündeln discusses the different driving forces that shape hours worked, and what these driving forces predict for the future of hours worked.

This event is organized by the  Macroéconomie Internationale,, which is the result of a partnership between the Banque de France and PSE. Sharing the same vision about scientific needs on international issues, these two organisations joint their efforts to build a chair with the objective of fostering the development of research on the financial & monetary international system, and in international Macroeconomics.
