Applied Macroeconomic Policy - ECON914

The objective of this unit is to investigate macroeconomic policies that are important to the aggregate economy. These policies may include monetary policies, fiscal policies, macro-prudential policies and exchange rate policies. We will use the workhorse models in macroeconomics to analyse the implications of these policies. Issues in policy designs are then discussed, particularly in regard to the global financial crisis of 2008–2009. Industry researchers will be engaged to discuss the industry perspective on these policies.
