The objective of this course is to provide an introduction to the analysis of monetary and fiscal macro-prudential policy making with practical applications to current policy challenges. Examples from European Union, the United States and Japan will be discussed. We will develop theoretical models of monetary and fiscal policy and learn how different policy recommendations can be evaluated using these models. Students will conduct practical simulation exercises and make use of MATLAB-based software tools for model analysis.

Please see the preliminary syllabus for further information about the course. We will provide an updated syllabus in April.
