Research in macroeconomics follows several distinct avenues
- The first is focused on long-run problems of economic growth and intergenerational distribution, highlighting issues of fiscal policy, social security, growth empirics and aspects of open economy macroeconomics. This line of research covers theoretical analyses as well as simulation models and econometric studies.
- The second avenue considers various short-run issues like theoretical studies of monetary policy in a new-keynesian framework, econometric studies of financial market behavior and business cycles, and finally modelling and testing expectations of private agents.
- The third avenue considers quantitative economic history, with a particular emphasis on international business cycles and financial markets.
