The Becker Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago will host a conference on Policy Uncertainty and its Economic Implications in Chicago on December 6–7, 2012.

This conference is spurred by the increasing academic and policy interest around the cause, effect, measurement and definition of economic and policy uncertainty. It will present a series of papers on the topic—typically early stage research pieces—over a two-day period.
