Association for Analytic Learning about Islam and Muslim Societies (AALIMS-NYUAD)

AALIMS is an organization of scholars aimed at promoting “analytic research of Muslim societies, with a focus on the roles of culture and religion in social, economic, and political trends in both the past and the present.” Previous workshop venues include Duke (2010), Harvard (2011), Stanford (2012, 2016), Rice (2013), Princeton (2014, 2015, 2018), Oxford (2015), and Pomona (2017).

NYUAD will join this group of elite academic institutions to provide a forum for the discussion and critical evaluation of research in political economy on Islam and Muslim societies that uses advanced descriptive, theoretical, and empirical methods of the modern social sciences.

Macroeconomic fluctuations with frictional labor and goods markets: Theory and Data

The focus will be on the general equilibrium interaction between goods market and labor markets, in a way reminiscent to the Keynesian mechanisms but in the most modern quantitative economic analysis and with a particular focus on policy multipliers (fiscal multipliers, financial multipliers) and the process of data collection based on consumer surveys, bar-codes, and the new analysis of job creation and destruction pioneered by Davis and Haltiwanger.
