Topics for supervision
If you wish to write a bachelor thesis with me, don't hesitate to stop by.
Currently, I'm increasingly interested in EU policies, inflation dynamics, fiscal and monetary policies. Nevertheless, topics from fields like economic history or economic growth are also welcomed. Some topics I offer can be quite simple but there are some that can be more challenging.
If you wish to write a diploma thesis with me, don't hesitate to stop by.
Currently, I'm increasingly interested in EU policies, inflation dynamics, fiscal consolidations, fiscal and monetary policies. Some topics I offer can be quite simple but there are some that can be more challenging.
Explaining asymmetric developments in the euro area
How long does it take until the positive effects of structural reforms do materialize?
Current account dynamics and euro area differences
Bond spreads of the EU member states. Are fundamentals enough to explain their dynamics?
New fiscal rules in the EU. Will they work?
Bond spreads and nonlinear models. Is there any evidence of switching behavior? Which variables cause switching?
Bond spreads and fiscal consolidations: When does the fiscal effort pays off?
Event studies: evaluating the effects of announcements of yet another austerity programme during the Great Recession.
Fiscal space: Shall we include private debts in calculations?
Issues in fiscal rules.
What explains different duration of the Great Recession across countries?
Reaction functions of various central banks in Great Recession
Identification of equilibrium exchange rates
Topics in economic growth (inequality, indebtedness, human capital)
Topics in economic history (20th century preferably, I'm mostly interested in the interplay between economic theory, economic policy and vice versa)
