Macroeconomics & Finance

How can we model growth in a global economy with many nonlinear and dynamic relationships? Macroeconomics helps provide answers to large-scale economic issues that can have a global impact by looking at governments, industries, central banking, and business cycles. Similarly, the ability to understand and interpret market volatility has become crucial to accurately assessing the health of an economy, and many macroeconomists also work on topics closely related to financial economics. Faculty overlap and connections in the Department of Economics and Fuqua School of Business are reflective of the close ties between the two fields.
