DFG funding for research project by Alexander Meyer-Gohde on macroeconomic models

Alexander Meyer-Gohde has been awarded funding by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for a project on macroeconomic models


The project, titled "Numerical diagnostics and improvements for the solution of linear dynamic macroeconomic models," will be supported by the DFG with 250,000 euros over the next three years. Meyer-Gohde, Financial Markets and Macroeconomics since April 2018, is a researcher at the Institute for Monetary and Financial Stability (IMFS) at Goethe University.
Meyer-Gohde’s research concentrates on the methodological foundations of macroeconomics, in particular the numerical, theoretical, and empirical foundations, and its interaction with financial markets. In his research project funded by the DFC, Meyer-Gohde will quantify numerical limitations of current linear solutions methods for dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models based on recent advances from applied mathematics and thus provide restrictions on monetary policy.
