This course will examine modern applied research on macroeconomic and financial issues. The main objective is to allow students to understand and critically appraise applied work on macroeconomic and financial topics.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
Upon successful completion of the requirements for this course, students will be able to:
- Select a model and combine from a model space comprising univariate or multivariate
- Apply and explain the principles of parsimony and fit;
- Explain the methodology of Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium modelling;
- Reconcile theory and evidence; and,
- Conduct hypothesis and diagnostic testing.
See the course outline on the College courses page. Outlines are uploaded as they become available.
There will be two assignments 30%, a mid-term 20% and a final examination 50%.
The assignments for EMET8010 require the use of MATLAB. Assignments for EMET3008 require no programming. The midterm and final examinations will be held according to the published university schedule posted at http://timetable.anu.edu.au/. It is the student's responsibility to keep abreast of any changes to the examination timetable. Final marks for the course will be based on the raw marks allocated for each assignment or examination. However, final marks may not be the same number as produced by that formula, as marks may be scaled. Any scaling applied will preserve the rank order of raw marks and may be either up or down.
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students.
