Advanced Macroeconomics II
AS.180.606 (01)

Prof. Carroll’s course focuses on heterogeneous agent macroeconomic modeling, with an emphasis on hands-on learning about how to construct heterogeneous agent models using state-of-the-art techniques.

Topics in Applied Microeconometrics
AS.180.632 (01)

This course teaches methods for using micro-data to recover structural parameters of microeconomic models. We cover static models, but focus largely on single-agent dynamic programming, including “full solution” methods along with innovations that permit circumvention of daunting computational tasks. Additional topics will be partially based on students’ interests, but will likely include: general equilibrium models, static and dynamic games, matching models, unobserved heterogeneity, structural methods with experimental data and biased expectations. The goal is to teach students to use structural methods in their own research, and so we will delve into the nuts and bolts of structural work, examining how researchers actually get from raw data to results. This includes: how the sub-sample for analysis is chosen, how the model is specified, how the programming problem is solved, which moments are generated, how these are matched to the analogous moments in the data and, importantly, how identification is established.

Causal Analysis
AS.180.620 (01)

AS.180.672 (01)

This course covers methods in applied empirical Industrial Organization. Similarly to the first term, the focus will be on the use of econometric analysis and data for descriptive and measurement purposes, and for testing the predictions of economic theories. Particular attention in this term will be given to dynamic settings and the empirical analysis of firm behavior. Topics to be covered include dynamic discrete choice, dynamic games, and dynamic demand.

Limited Commitment in Macroeconomics
AS.180.644 (01)

This course studies common environments in macroeconomics where one or more agents lack the ability to credibly commit to making choices in the future (often due to either an enforcement constraint or asymmetric information). Both foundational papers and more recent work will be discussed. Topics to be covered will include models of borrowing and default, models of monetary policy, and models of insurance. In addition to studying these models theoretically, students will learn how to solve some of them computationally (and do so fast enough for quantitative work).
