MInt Amsterdam is one of the research groups of the Amsterdam School of Economics Research Institute. It focuses on applied and theoretical research within the areas of macroeconomics and international economics.
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, and pension economics. The group consists of faculty members, post-docs, PhD students and affiliated members.
Faculty members of MInt participate in the research and teaching of the Tinbergen Institute. The Tinbergen Institute 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).
MInt is pleased to welcome Patrick J. Kehoe (Stanford University, University College London, Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis), as visiting professor. Patrick has published in numerous prestigious publications, including Journal of International Economics, Econometrica, International Economic Review, and Journal of Economic Theory. He currently serves on several editorial boards and is a Fellow of the Econometric Society.
