Research topics

The research activity will be focused on the construction of a new DSGE (Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium Model) for the Italian Economy for studying the effects of the fiscal policy, as well as policy key issues, mainly related to productivity and competitiveness.

Nowadays, there is an increasing interest and discussion in the academic literature and institutions, mainly in central banks, on the relevance of this kind of models for monitoring the economic policy. The “Osservatorio Riccardo Faini” aims at building a DSGE in order to explore these structural issues for the Italian economy.
