The ECB and Its Watchers

The open platform for macroeconomic models of the IMFS now contains more than 150 models. In a joint research project with the Hoover Institution, the new version MMB3.1 of the website www.macromodelbase.com also offers further technical features.
The Liber amicorum on "Monetary Union, Central Banks and a Stable Financial System" is a tribute to the interdisciplinary research of IMFS Distinguished Professor Helmut Siekmann.
The IMFS will intensify collaboration with three additional researchers: Petra Geraats, Luisa Lambertini and Maik Wolters will contribute their expertise as Affiliated Professors and Research Fellows at the IMFS.
