Business Cycle Analysis

Analysing fluctuations in the economic conditions has a long tradition in economics. A variety of models and methods both theoretical and empirical have been used traditionally for investigating the sources and effects of economic fluctuations. This variety is also reflected in the related research performed in the Economics Department of the European University Institute.
