The course analyses expectations and learning in dynamic stochastic macroeconomics. We develop techniques for solving for rational expectations equilibrium (REE) and examine whether economic agents endowed imperfect knowledge but following statistical learning schemes will over time converge to REE. Cases where learning can lead to non-REE learning dynamics and dynamic paths of temporary equilibria are also considered. The approach has yielded important implications for different aspects of macroeconomic policy. Monetary policy has in particular been studied. A range of other applications are also discussed.

The aim of the course is to review and evaluate recent advances in the research on structural change, in particular, how structural change helps us to understand various macroeconomic phenomena. By the end of the course students expected to have a good understanding of the data and measurement issues related to multi–sector models, and to able to work with various variations of multi–sector growth models.
