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 Francesco D’Acunto and Michael Weber will teach a three-day course entitled “Subjective Inflation Expectations: Measurement, Effects, and Policy Implications”.
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".
More details and call for applications will be available soon
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.
