This volume on macroeconomic and monetary topics regarding Bangladesh are a collection from papers that were presented at the fourth BDI conference held at the University of California-Berkeley in February, 2013. Most of the chapters are based on empirical analyses, using data over various time periods and applying many different econometric techniques. They address real sector issues such as growth, employment, saving, investment, trade and agriculture, as well as financial or monetary issues such as money supply, inflation, equity markets, and microfinance.
