The Centre for Dynamic Macroeconomic Analysis was established in 2003, and facilitates a programme of research centred on macroeconomic theory and policy. The Centre is currently engaged in a number of specific research projects and, in general, aims to foster research in the following broad areas: characterising the key stylised facts of the business cycle; constructing theoretical models that can match these business cycles; using theoretical models to understand the normative and positive aspects of the macroeconomic policymakers' stabilisation problem, in both open and closed economies; understanding the conduct of monetary/macroeconomic policy in the UK and other countries; analyzing the impact of globalization and policy reform on the macroeconomy; and analyzing the impact of financial factors on the long-run growth of the UK economy, from both an historical and a theoretical perspective. The Centre also has interests in developing numerical techniques for analyzing dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models.
