Semester Herbstsemester 2021
Angebotsmuster Jedes Herbstsemester
Dozierende Sarah Lein (sarah.lein@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt This course starts with a thorough introduction, both from an empirical and a theoretical perspective, into the basic New Keynesian macroeconomic model. This framework has emerged as the workhorse for the analysis of monetary policy and its implications for inflation, economic fluctuations and welfare. We then use the model as a benchmark to discuss current empirical research in monetary macroeconomics. Each student summarizes one empirical research paper that was presented during the Jackson Hole conference this summer. This conference is one of the most important international conferences for central bank govenours, finance ministers, academics, and financial market participants. It reflects current issues relevant for central banks. The papers are usually written in a way that makes them easily digestable for policy makers, thus are not extremely technical. Papers will be assigned during the course.
Lernziele The main aim of this course is to describe a state-of-the-art macroeconomic general equilibrium framework and use it to analyze the conduct of monetary policy and to understand some of the major challenges currently faced by central banks around the world.
