The IMF's Research Department is organizing a conference in honor of Guillermo Calvo on April 15-16, 2004, to be held at IMF headquarters in Washington, DC. In addition to being one of the most influential macroeconomists of the last 25 years—particularly when it comes to developing countries—Guillermo Calvo had a long and distinguished affiliation with the Fund's Research Department from 1987 to 1994. During those years, he was Senior Advisor under both Jacob Frenkel and Michael Mussa. Under his intellectual leadership, the Research Department carried out path-breaking research on, among other issues, capital flows, debt maturity, and inflation stabilization. Calvo also made an important contribution to the internal discussion and formulation of Fund policies, particularly in Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and Latin America.
Given that the main themes of Calvo's career overlap considerably with the Research Department's and, more generally, the Fund's research work on developing countries, this conference will also serve the purpose of showcasing the Fund's research work in these important areas. To this effect, the conference will bring together a highly distinguished number of scholars, policymakers, and Fund staff members, all of whom have had the privilege of collaborating and interacting with Guillermo Calvo throughout his illustrious career.
The Conference is open to the public – through the IMF Center entrance. For security purpose please have some form of picture identification available. Please register by sending an e-mail to RESCalvoConference@imf.org. Public registration will close on April 12.
