OVERVIEW

The Macroeconomic Analysis and Policy module is made of courses dealing with topics at the frontier of policy-relevant research: monetary and fiscal policy; heterogeneous households, inequality and redistribution (“HANK” models); financial crises; bubbles; labor markets and unemployment; and international linkages.

The courses are taught by leading research and teaching figures in their respective fields. Emphasis is put on introducing tools and developing intuition. All courses review core, standard models useful for understanding crises and recessions, and the role of policy therein. Each course contains at least one part that deals with recent research at the frontier.

The program will be complemented by a special lecture by Kjetil Storesletten on China’s Economic Transformation

PREREQUISITES

A pre-requisite knowledge of macroeconomics at intermediate (Master or very strong undergraduate) level is preferable, although not formally required.
