Macroeconomics, finance and history of economics

publié le , mis à jour le

Coordinator :

Camille Cornand


The research group works on three themes mainly related to monetary economics :

Macroeconomic cycles and economic policy

Works on macroeconomics cycles study the transmission of business cycles in open and financialized economies and how monetary policy and central banks communication can affect economic outcomes. The analyzes are based on theoretical tools (including DSGE), and empirical and experimental tools.

Finance and Banking

Banking issues are addressed using the tools of finance and industrial network design with an original approach using experimentation.

History of Economic Analysis

Researches conducted in this area are related to the history of macroeconomics and analyze the foundations of monetary policy and the history of banking practices. The institutional determinants of growth and development, with particular attention to the colonial legacy are adressed too.
