The Macro Lunch Group
The mission of the Macro Lunch Group (MLG) is to provide a forum for a cohesive group of researchers to meet regularly to discuss each other’s ongoing research. All faculty in the Finance Department, as well as other faculty and researchers in the local Economics/Finance research community (including, but not limited to, the Penn Economics Department and the Research Department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia) are invited to be members of the MLG, subject to the following guidelines:
1. Members of the MLG must attend the Tuesday lunches regularly. Regularly does not mean every session, but as a guideline, participation in at least half of the sessions is expected.
2. Only members of the MLG will make presentations. An exception is that short-term distinguished visitors to the department, or other such unusual targets of opportunity, will be invited to give presentations.
3. To assist with planning, MLG members can order their lunches for a given Tuesday by noon on the previous Thursday. The box lunches will then be labelled with the name of the person who ordered it.
