Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore

Macroeconomia

Il gruppo include docenti e studiosi di macroeconomia, e macroeconometria finanziaria.

Argomenti di ricerca includono l'analisi delle fluttuazioni del ciclo economico, gli effetti di politiche fiscali e monetarie, le dinamiche dei tassi cambio, fragilità finanziaria e crisi economiche. L'analisi econometrica delle relazioni causali tra variabili macro e finanziarie tramite modelli dinamici, in particolare metodi di inferenza per modelli di econometria macro-finanziaria.

I componenti del gruppo insegnano corsi a livello "undergraduate" e "graduate" in macroeconomia avanzata, economia monetaria ed economia monetaria di livello progredito.
