Real Exchange Rate Misalignment in the Euro Area: Is the Current Development Helpful?

Dissertation topic:
Three Essays on the Role of Macroeconomic Imbalances

Disertation abstract:
In my contemporary research I engage in identification of various types of macroeconomic imbalances in the European Union. The aim is to show there are many different types of imbalances, they evolve over time and understanding their consequences is absolutely essential for any European policymaking authority.

Current research focus aims at evaluation of real exchange rate misalignment in the euro area. Special focus is being paid to deflationary environment and what implications for misalignment deterioration/correction it entails.
