Both macroeconomics and international economics are broadly defined and include (but are not limited to) business cycle analysis, fiscal policy, growth theory, international trade and finance, macro-finance, monetary economics, environmental macroeconomics, and pension economics. The group consists of faculty members, post-docs, PhD students and affiliated members.
Collaboration with the Tinbergen Institute
Faculty members of MInt participate in the research and teaching of the Tinbergen Institute. This is the graduate school and research institute operated jointly by the Schools of Economics and Econometrics of the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR), University of Amsterdam (UvA) and VU University Amsterdam (VU).
The Tinbergen Institute organises the Macro Seminar Series (TIMSS). This takes place (roughly) every second week on Thursdays from 16:00 - 17:15 either at the Tinbergen Institute Amsterdam (TIA) or at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). This is addition to the MInt internal lunch seminar series.
