The role of expectation formation in the transmission of monetary and fiscal policy: Evidence from macro-experiments

During the following two years, the Deutsche Bundesbank will financially support the project “The role of expectation formation in the transmission of monetary and fiscal policy: Evidence from macro-experiments”. The project will be conducted by Prof. Dr. Christian Proaño and myself.

In this project, two macro-experiments will be carried out to investigate how economic agents’ expectations affect monetary and fiscal policy in normal times and in periods where the zero lower bound (ZLB) plays an important role.
