Practitioners have long attempted to understand movements in macroeconomic variables in an open economy context, and use that knowledge to help forecast key variables. In some areas, theory has moved forward more than practical empirics, and in others empirical techniques have moved beyond theory. The course starts with a review of key cross border relationships in the context of continuing globalization, and then moves to sections on examining key variables: Business cycles, macro-financial linkages, current account balances, exchange and interest rates.
Saturday – Sunday, June 24 – 25, 2023
The course will take place in-person only.
