Macroeconomic Lecture Series

A four-part lecture series on applied macroeconomics

November 6–December 4, 2012


Rosenwald Hall

In the autumn of 2012, the Becker Friedman Institute sponsored a lecture series on applied macroeconomics for graduate students in the Department of Economics and the Booth School of Business.

Topics covered in the talks included the links between microeconomic evidence and macroeconomic modeling, the impact of alternative shocks or mechanisms in modern empirical DSGE models, and how such mechanisms relate to more traditional RBC economies and impact on optimal policy.
