“Labor, Firms, and Macro” Reading Group

I am organizing a virtual reading group/workshop on “Labor, Firms, and Macro” broadly defined. The format alternates between a reading group where a participant presents a published paper (an archive can be found here) and a workshop where an invited speaker presents a working paper (the schedule can be found here). Please contact me if you are interested in participating.
