Inhalt This course provides an in-depth treatment of selected topics at the frontier between macro and financial economics. The course includes a self-study part based on audio-animated slides, and in-class meetings with in-depth discussions of the topics and selected papers.
Lernziele The main goals of the lecture are to understand
- the allocation of resources along the time axis: How much should an individual save? Is there an optimal amount of saving – an optimal capital stock – for the economy as a whole? Can an economy save too much? How are interest rates related to growth? Can interest rates be “too low”, and what are the consequences? We discuss the role and the determinants of interest rates – for individual households and the economy.
- the role of financial assets in the allocation of risk: Risk averse individuals command a premium for holding risky assets. How can the riskiness of an asset (stock, bond, project) be operationalized, and how is it related to the risk premium? How can assets be priced without using risk premiums? The state preference model provides interesting insights to both questions: the pricing of cash-flows using stochastic discount factors (SDF) in general markets, and the no-arbitrage principle in complete markets which can be used to price options and many corporate securities.
Literatur There is no official textbook. There are audio-augmented slides for each part of the self-study part of the lecture; they are put on ADAM sequentially one or two weeks in advance.
The four papers which are discussed in the in-class meetings (see Link "Further Information" below) are put on ADAM in advance.
Complimentary reading is encouraged – references to key papers and books can be found in the lecture notes, and more recommended readings are available on request.
Bemerkungen The course is organized as a combination of in-class meetings and self-study, plus Q&A contact windows with the instructors in zoom.
- In-class meetings are held for the introductory sessions for each topic (ITA, APR), and the discussion of selected (specifically: 4) papers. In-class participation is required. (Occasionally, a specific topic is presented.) See the Time Schedule which you find following the link "Further Information" below.
- Self-study is based on audio-augmented ppt-slides which covers the basic material of the lecture. The slides are uploaded 1-2 weeks in advance. We highly recommend study or discuss the topics in small groups.
