    We study the effects of supply disruptions - for instance caused by the emergence of a pandemic - in an economy with Keynesian unemployment and endogenous productivity growth. By negatively affecting investment, even ...
  • Santamaría, Marta; Ventura, Jaume; Yesilbayraktar, Ugur (2021-04-09)
    Are country borders still an impediment to trade flows within Europe? Using a microlevel survey with 3 million annual shipments of goods, we construct a matrix of bilateral trade for 269 European regions. Take two similar ...

    We study how changes in the steady-state real interest rate (henceforth, r*) affect the optimal inflation target in a New Keynesian DSGE model with trend inflation and a lower bound on the nominal interest rate. In this ...
  • Fornaro, Luca (2021-04)
    Since the creation of the euro, capital flows among member countries have been large and volatile. Motivated by this fact, I provide a theory connecting the exchange rate regime to financial integration. The key feature ...
  • Hauk, Esther; Lanteri, Andrea; Marcet, Albert (2019-11)
    We study optimal policy when the planner has partial information in a general setup where observed signals are endogenous to policy. In this context, signal extraction and policy have to be determined jointly. We derive a ...
  • Fajgelbaum, Pablo; Schaal, Edouard (2019-12)
    We study optimal transport networks in spatial equilibrium. We develop a framework consisting of a neoclassical trade model with labor mobility in which locations are arranged on a graph. Goods must be shipped through ...
  • Schaal, Edouard (2017-05)
    This paper studies the impact of time-varying idiosyncratic risk at the establishment level on aggregate unemployment fluctuations and on the labor market over the period 1972-2009. I build a tractable search-and-matching ...
  • Fajgelbaum, Pablo; Schaal, Edouard; Taschereau-Dumouchel, Mathieu (2019)
    We develop a theory of endogenous uncertainty and business cycles in which short-lived shocks can generate long-lasting recessions. In the model, higher uncertainty about fundamentals discourages investment. Since agents ...
