The 29th meeting of the Australia New Zealand Econometric Study Group (ANZESG) was hosted by The Reserve Bank of New Zealand of Economics on 14 and 15 February 2019 in Wellington. Since its foundation as the NZESG in 1997, the meeting has been a regular forum for econometricians from Australia and New Zealand, combined with many visitors from further afield in Asia, North America and Europe, to present and discuss their work.
The Programme Chairs for the 2019 meeting were Peter Phillips (Yale University and the University of Auckland) and Leo Krippner (The Reserve Bank of New Zealand). The local organising chair Leo Krippner was supported by the Reserve Bank’s Economics Department, and particularly Emma Clark who provided brilliant assistance prior to the meeting and throughout the proceedings.
The meeting received 37 submissions and all were initially invited to present. The final programme contained 26 papers that were presented in eight sessions over two days. The workshop retained its unique feature of a single stream, with 15 minute presentations, a discussant session of up to five minutes, and the remaining time for general questions and discussion. Time management was particularly effective this year, assisted by a computer count down and beeper system.
