18th to 21st April 2023 (distance learning)

This course is aimed at MSc, MRes and PhD students, early researchers, and research staff from central banks, ministries, and the private sector, all with some prior experience of macroeconomic modelling. Its contents differ from the CIMS summer school courses, which are usually held in September. The Easter school is focused on a shorter list of themes, some of which not commonly found in summer schools offered by most economics departments.

This year the CIMS Easter School will cover:

  • Optimal fiscal policy and computational methods I- taught by R. Oikonomou
  • Optimal fiscal policy and computational methods II- taught by V. Valaitis
  • Inequality in incomplete markets – taught by K. Storesletten
  • Topics in sovereign debt and default – taught by H. Joo, K. Shakhnov and T. Asonuma
