The Leibniz Network on Real Estate Markets and Capital Markets (ReCapNet) focuses on the interactions between real estate markets and capital markets. The seventh conference of the network takes place at ZEW in Mannheim on November 6 and 7, 2015.

The main theme of this year’s conference is "Real Estate, Financial Stability, and the Macroeconomy".

The conference is supported by the Stiftung Geld und Währung (Frankfurt am Main).

A non-exhaustive list of potential topics:

  • Real estate "bubbles": identification and consequences for financial stability
  • Regulation of real estate financing, such as macroprudential policies
  • Cyclical and long-run developments in the real estate market and the macroeconomy
  • Housing, household portfolio choice and asset pricing
  • Spill overs between real estate markets and capital markets

Submissions on the topics mentioned above or other aspects of the nexus between real estate markets and capital markets are encouraged. Papers will be selected based on a competitive double-blind peer-review process. Contributions by both, established as well as junior researchers, are welcome.
