Macroeconomics and macroeconometrics

The aim of conducting research in macroeconomics is that of understanding causes and consequences of business cycle fluctuations. The identification of the drivers of the business cycle, the modeling and investigation of the mechanisms via which macroeconomic shocks can affect output and inflation, and the study of the role that macroeconomic policies (in particular, fiscal and monetary policies) can play in avoiding recessions or excessive price volatility are crucial aspects of this discipline. State-of-the-art research comprises the identification of non-linearities in the above mentioned transmission mechanisms as well as the distributional consequences of macroeconomic policy interventions.
