Welcome at the Chair of Economics I - International Economics and Finance
We study the role of the financial sectors and their consequence on economic development.
The chair develops and applies theoretical as well as empirical macroeconomics models. We focus on questions concerning monetary policy and bank regulation. How should central banks behave in case of a speculative attack? Which institutional changes are necessary to sustainably stabilize the European Monetary Union? Can regulation reduce the tendency as well as the cost of banking crises?
