Application of Synthetic Control Method to Various Economic Policy Interventions

Dissertation topic:
Application of Synthetic Control Method to Various Economic Policy Interventions

Disertation abstract:
The focus of dissertation thesis is twofold. First, we aim to apply the SCM on various economic policy interventions. Specifically, we will analyse 1) the impact of agricultural subsidies on the farm production in the Czech Republic after the accession of the European Union (EU) in 2004, 2) the impact of the Brexit referendum on several Czech macroeconomic indicators, and 3) the impact of two hikes by the European Central Bank (ECB) in 2011 on macroeconomic indicators of selected eurozone countries. Second, this project aims to deliver methodological improvements to the SCM, such as the implementation of confidence intervals as one of the robustness checks of the SCM.
