Course Description

This is a short topics course in Macroeconomics. I will discuss setting up and solving games under cooperation and open-loop Nash strategies in dynamics stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models and I introduce a Matlab-based toolbox that facilitates the computation of equilibria in medium to large-scale models using perturbation techniques. In illustrating the toolbox, I focus on the open economy aspects of monetary policy.
