Behavioural Macroeconomics - Macroeconomics

Most macroeconomic outcomes depend on people’s beliefs about the future. Different models of expectation formation will, as such, have different implications for macroeconomic dynamics. This short course aims to introduce you to the main methodological tools used in behavioural macroeconomics, while at the same time providing a survey of the main questions and answers given in the modern literature.


  • The empirical evidence on expectations

  • Data-consistent models of expectation formation

  • Macroeconomic consequences of data-consistent models of expectations

  • The rise of the data-economy and its macroeconomic implications
