International Trade and Macroeconomics - Fabio Ghironi

14 - 18 Jan 2019

This mini-course focuses on the intersection of international trade and macroeconomics. Its purpose is to expose students to recent developments in this research area, to develop understanding of the interaction of micro and macro dynamics in international interdependence, and to stimulate ideas for research. The course studies how international macroeconomic models with trade microfoundations can shed new light on long-standing and novel questions in international macroeconomics. We will confront theories with empirical evidence and pay special attention to the roles of producer entry and exit in domestic and export markets, and firm heterogeneity, in shaping aggregate fluctuations and economic policy outcomes. Topics we will cover include: international trade and macroeconomic dynamics with producer entry, exit, and heterogeneity; FDI, offshoring, and international business cycles; labor market frictions and the consequences of trade integration; financial frictions, banks, and trade; and monetary policy and trade. The course takes place every day from 9.30 am to 12.30 pm
