The 26th EABCN training school will be a three days course on 'Monetary Policy: An Imperfect Knowledge Perspective' taught by Professor Bruce Preston (University of Melbourne). Using a New Keynesian model with learning dynamics, this course builds an analytical framework for monetary policy evaluation that is consistent with the pervasive evidence of low-frequency variation in macroeconomic data. The consequences of such belief structures for monetary policy design are explored.
The 27th EABCN training school will be a three days course on 'Practical DSGE Models' taught by Professor Fabio Canova (BI Norwegian School of Management). Most DSGE model used by policy institutions are generally of large scale and little attention is generally paid to issues like model misspecification, model evaluation, model reduction and re-specification. This course offers hints on how one can address these all these issues in a unified way and make economic analyses more robust.
