Christian Wolf (MIT) will give an EABCN Training School on “Empirical Methods for Business-Cycle Analysis” on June 10-12, 2024. This will be an on-site event in Mannheim. More details coming soon.
- Training Schools
Òscar Jordà (SF-FED) will teach an in person three-day course entitled “Analysis of macroeconomics data using local projections”.
Professors Franck Portier (University College London and CEPR) will teach an in person three-day course entitled “The macroeconomics of complementarities”.
Professor David Berger (Duke University) will teach a three-day course titled “Housing and the Macroeconomy”. The training school will take place in person at the Banco de Portugal on May 8-10, 2023.
Professor Refet Gűrkaynak (Bilkent University and CEPR) will teach a three day online class on "Finance for Macroeconomists: High Frequency Analysis, News, Surprises and Shocks".
Professors Eric Ghysels, Massimiliano Marcellino and Jonas Straukas will a three-day course entitled “What's New in Mixed Frequency Data (MIDAS), with Applications to Machine Learning and Big Data”.
The focus of the course is the use of mixed frequency data in economics and finance. A variety of single and multiple equation models will be considered, for both small and large datasets, combined with alternative estimation and inference techniques. Theory and practical implementations will be covered.
Professor John Hassler (IIES Stockholm University) and Professor Per Krusell (IIES Stockholm University) will teach a three day online class on "Climate Change and its Effects on Macro/Monetary Policy".
Professors Francesco D’Acunto and Michael Weber will teach a three-day course entitled “Subjective Inflation Expectations: Measurement, Effects, and Policy Implications”.
Professor Ludwig Straub (Harvard University) will teach the EABCN Training School "Heterogeneous-Agent Macro in the Sequence Space" in Manheim. The goal of this course is to get participants up to speed on solution methods for general equilibrium models with heterogeneity, including computation of steady states, transition dynamics, estimation, and optimal policy. We will focus on the “sequence space” approach to solving these problems
Professors Itamar Drechsler, Alexi Savov and Philipp Schabl will teach a four-day course entitled “Financial Intermediation and Monetary Policy”. This class will explore the role of financial intermediaries in the transmission of monetary policy. The central topics are how monetary policy affects bank lending, the supply of liquidity, risk premia, and inflation through its interaction with the financial system. The training school will cover both theory and empirics, emphasizing the most recent contributions to the literature as well as our own work. Above all, this is a very active area of research, and we hope our discussions will stimulate the next wave of new ideas.
Martin Eichenbaum (Northwestern) and Mathias Trabandt (Goethe University Frankfurt) will teach the EABCN online class on "Formulating and Estimating DSGE Models" on Sept 27 - Oct 1, 2021.
