Transmission Mechanisms & Economic Policy
The "Transmission Mechanisms and Economic Policy" theme at the Janeway Institute brings together researchers conducting fundamental research in macroeconomics. We use a variety of approaches – encompassing micro and macro econometrics, macro models and historical and institutional analysis – to develop theoretical and empirical work on a wide range of issues, from firm growth and firm churning to household level savings and inequality, from unemployment dynamics to supply chains, from the analysis of monetary policy to international finance and global imbalances. Our research aims to generate inputs for stabilisation and structural policy.
Prof. Meredith Crowley, a Coordinator at the Janeway Institute, University of Cambridge, discusses her research which focusses on global transmissions and the important role the new Institute will play in bringing together leading researchers from around the world and supporting new opportunities for young scholars.
Prof. Giancarlo Corsetti, a former Coordinator at the Janeway Institute, University of Cambridge, discusses his research in international macroeconomics, what the new Institute aims to do and the new opportunities it brings.
