The fifth edition of the Salento Macro Meetings will take place in Lecce, Italy on the 25th and 26th of July 2022. The objective of this event is to bring distinguished researchers in Macroeconomics in the relaxed and fruitful atmosphere of Salento, the peninsula located in the southernmost region of Apulia, Italy.

We welcome submissions of theoretical or empirical papers addressing issues including (but not limited to):
-    Consumption behaviour and the macroeconomy
-    Firm dynamics and heterogeneity
-    Monetary and/or fiscal policy in closed or open economy
