Macroeconomics: Consumption, Saving, Production, Employment, and Investment
JEL E52 - Monetary Policy Study of the impact of monetary policy on aggregate variables like GDP, infaltion rate, consumption, unemployment. To do se we use Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) Models. Research focuses both on implementable as well as optimal montary policy. Macroeconomics, International Economics and Development
Monetary Policy, Central Banking, and the Supply of Money and Credit
JEL F12 - Models of Trade with Imperfect Competition and Scale Economies Analysis and theory of international trade in the presence of heterogeneous companies. Study of the impact of tariff policies on international trade, firm performance and consumer welfare, with related cost-benefit analysis and with particular attention to the design and revision of international exchange agreements and their economic effects. Macroeconomics, International Economics and Development
JEL F13 - Trade Policy; International Trade Organizations Analysis of the incentives behind countries' unilateral choice of trade policies (e.g. import and export taxes) as well as the outcomes under retaliation. Given that the "trade wars" that follow the retaliations make all countries involved worst-off, those studies are then used to analyze how to design trade agreements to reach better outcomes for all countries involved. Analysis of the effects of trade reforms, on firms’ performance and their decision to trade. Macroeconomics, International Economics and Development
JEL F41 - Open Economy Macroeconomics Use of Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) Open Economy Models to analyse countries interactions. For example, those models are used to study if and how the transmission of fiscal and monetary policy changes from closed to open economy. Or if and how demand and supply shocks transmit from one country to another. Those studies can be conductd under several scenarios: small vs big country (as compared to the rest of the world), monetary union, fixed vs flexible exchange rates.
