Forecasting is a useful device for economic policy making. Numerous institutions like governments, central banks, the European Commission, the OECD, or the IMF regularly provide economic forecasts. This course, taught by Jens Boysen-Hogrefe (Kiel), aims at giving insights into the field of time series forecasting from a practitioner’s point of view. The course is additionally going to be augmented with short targeted presentations by the Forecasting team of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy.
