3 ECTS SECS-P/02
The course reviews the fiscal and monetary policies in the euro area.
Fiscal policies are conducted individually by each country, although within the many constraints imposed by the euro area institutional framework (including the Maastricht Treaty, the Stability and Growth Pact, the Fiscal Compact). The pros and cons of expansionary fiscal policies, especially in the context of the euro area crisis, will also be analyzed, in order to identify their effects on public debt, interest rates, GDP growth and so on.
Monetary policy is run by the European Central Bank by taking into account the needs of the whole euro area and by deciding, among other things, the reference interest rates. The ECB is also subject to the severe institutional constraints established in the Maastricht Treaty, that assign her the primary task of assuring monetary stability. During the crisis, however, the ECB has embarked in non-conventional monetary policies, aimed at overtaking the problem of the interest rates zero lower bound and to favor the economic recovery of euro area crisis countries.
Competences and abilities to be acquired:
At the end of the course the student will be able to analyze and discuss critically the conduct of fiscal and monetary policies in the euro area.
THE EXAM IS WRITTEN
Prof. Caterina Giusti – First 3 CFU “Statistical Data Analysis II”
Dott. Vincenzo Mauro – Second 3 CFU “Statistical methods for policy evaluation and causal inference”
Programme in English:
The aim of the course is to introduce students who have already studied the basic concepts of statistical inference and of the linear regression model to the analysis of categorical data, with a special focus on generalized linear models, and to inferential statistical methods for program evaluation.
The course will first introduce the distributions and inference for categorical data and for contingency tables. Then, the course will introduce generalized linear models, with a special focus on logistic regression.
In the second part, it will focus on providing a basic knowledge on methods for the impact evaluation of policies and programs. The main econometric methods used in impact analyses (Randomized Trials, PS Matching, Instrumental Variables, Regression Discontinuity Designs, Difference-in-Differences) will be introduced and described. The course also contains practical modules that use data and real examples to show the computational application of some of the methods presented.
During the course, exercises and case studies will be solved using the R and Stata software.
The exam will consist in a written and oral test.
