Dr. Srinivas Raghavendra, economics at NUI Galway  presented his paper “Unpaid labour and distribution of income” at the 20th Annual Conference of the Research Network on Macroeconomics and Macroeconomics Policies (FMM) held in Berlin in October 2016 under the theme “Towards Pluralism in Macroeconomics?”

The aim of the conference was to assess the current state of macroeconomics: key questions included:

  • What has changed in the two decades since the foundation of the network?
  • Is there greater pluralism in theoretical approaches?
  • What are the improvements in modelling the economy in orthodox and heterodox approaches?
  • What is the explanatory power and empirical content of macroeconomics today?
