  Add to Calendar 2018-05-28 9:00 2018-05-30 19:00 Europe/Paris Oil and the Macroeconomy

The course covers the determination of the price of oil in global markets and the
relationship between the price of oil and the macroeconomy (inflation, growth, financial
markets). Both empirical approaches and theoretical models are discussed along with
institutional background. The course examines selected episodes such as the surges in
the price of oil in the late 1970s and mid-2000s, the spikes in the price of oil in 1973/74 and
1990/91, as well as the oil price declines of 1986 and 2014-16. It also deals with optimal
monetary policy responses to oil price shocks and the possible role of asymmetries in the
transmission of oil price shocks as well as implications of the shale oil revolution in the
United States.
