Description: 

This course aims at enabling students to conduct research in promising areas in macroeconomics. One area aims to identify the effects of fiscal and monetary policy using micro datasets. Further "hot" areas are macro and inequality, the role of expectations in macro, and macrofinance.
In a first step, we read and discuss recent papers and some classics. The fruitful discussions and the intensive engagement with the topics should lead to the development of independent research ideas.

More information can be found in the attached syllabus.

Given the ongoing pandemic situation, this semester the course will take place online. More information about access to the course platform will be uploaded after October 15th.
