In order to understand Figure 1 let us first concentrate on the case of low flexibility (b2 = 0.1). 0000004895 00000 n 0000003135 00000 n Therefore, economics is the foundation of behavioral economics. AKERLOF: BEHAVIORAL MACROECONOMICS In what follows I shall describe how behav-ioral macroeconomists, incorporating realistic assumptions grounded in psychological and so-ciological observation, have produced models that comfortably account for each of these mac-roeconomic phenomena.

For values of b2 exceeding 0.5, these trade-offs become positively sloped – that is, when c1 (the inflation parameter in the Taylor rule) increases, both inflation and output volatility decline. We also found, however, that there is a limit to the comfort flexibility can provide to central bankers. Towards a behavioural foundation of macroeconomics XX, 228 S., graph.

A world without the WTO: what’s at stake? This presents the relationship between output and inflation variability that we obtain for increasing levels of flexibility, assuming that the central bank keeps its inflation control constant. Homo economicus continues to reign supreme in dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models. 2011, Gabaix 2014, Westerhoff and Franke 2012, Hommes 2016, Hommes and Lustenhouwer 2016, Muellbauer 2017; see also the recent criticism of Blanchard 2017 and the chapters in Gürkaynak and Tille 2017). 9.30 – 10.40 David 1: Welcome, Intro, & Methods in Behavioral Economics 11.00 – 12.10 Matthew 1: Normal-Science Behavioral Economics (& Camp Outline) 2.00 – 3.10 Matthew 2: Belief-Based Preferences & Intro to Prospect Theory 3.30 – 4.40 Matthew 3: Reference Dependence and News Utility In that case, the central bank can pursue a tighter inflation target without paying a price in terms of a higher output volatility. 0000002729 00000 n Clearly, this must be located to the left of the minimum point of the relationship. Nothing really can go wrong in models populated by supreme agents peacefully optimising and endowed with great cognitive abilities that allow them to understand the complexities of the world. De Grauwe, P and Y Ji (2017b), “Structural reforms and monetary policies in a behavioural macroeconomic model", CEPR, Discussion Paper no 12336. 0000010819 00000 n Behavior is always assumed to be rational: given the restrictions imposed by the primi- tives, all actors in the economic models are assumed to maximize their objectives. Macroeconomic studies emphasize decisions with a time dimension, such as various forms of investments. 0000003839 00000 n Dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models are still dominant in mainstream macroeconomics, but they are only able to explain business cycle fluctuations as the result of exogenous shocks. These reforms lead to a lowering of mark ups in the goods and labour markets and move the economy closer to perfect competition. 0000006898 00000 n �G��k>U'D���N��_�F�F,=��*ܙ���P��:�i_��^��}i��,�=�C����=�n�/��6��� ��Ņ11��Cљ7��\Ji��#�֧��n�xfsܷ���+㤈:�q$�� �6�:����I����)g��O>x��,y�z9J���䝙OW8�‡� The models further help to explain the international transmission of business cycle fluctuations. This feature of the higher moments of the output gap is generated endogenously in the model. The horizontal axis shows the standard deviations of output; the vertical axis the standard deviations of inflation. This is also the way structural reforms have been modelled in standard DSGE models (e.g. 2005, Tesfatsion and Judd 2006, Colander et al. Figure 2 allows us to obtain some insights about the optimal level of flexibility. In the 1976 book The Economic Approach to Human Behavior, the economist Gary S. Becker famously outlined a number of ideas known as the pillars of so-called ‘rational c… To support rigorous and objective research projects on U.S. economic structure, behavior, and performance whose findings inform and strengthen decision-making by … There is a growing number of researchers developing ‘agent-based’ models and ‘behavioural’ macroeconomic models (Alfarano et al. 2008, Farmer 2006, Farmer and Foley 2009, Gatti et al. In order to do so, we constructed policy trade-offs of the central bank for different levels of flexibility. This downward movement implies that increasing flexibility creates a ‘win-win’ situation in that both the volatility of output and inflation decline with increasing flexibility. That is, optimism (pessimism) leads to an increase (decline) in output, and the increase (decline) in output in term intensifies optimism (pessimism) (De Grauwe 2012, De Grauwe and Ji 2017a). One of the most important is the effect of fairness considerations on wages and employment relationships.

"These Lectures on Behavioral Macroeconomics remind us that De Grauwe is also an excellent macroeconomic theorist and a wonderful narrator. 0000001826 00000 n This may lead to the conclusion that flexibility is always welfare improving – but that is not the case. As the degree of flexibility increases, we observe that the trade-off curves shift to the left and become less negatively sloped. Presently, many macroeconomic models, representing different theories, [4] are derived by aggregating microeconomic models allowing economists to test them with both macroeconomic and … 0000004164 00000 n 0000012232 00000 n 0000007571 00000 n 0000001684 00000 n De Grauwe, P and C Macchiarelli (2015) “Animal spirits and credit cycles”, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control 59: 95-117.

It is not the result of imposing such a feature on the stochastic shocks hitting the economy. 0000003600 00000 n However, when we go too far with structural reforms, we go beyond the minimum point on the line.

There is now a significant body of empirical evidence showing that the output gaps (and also the growth of output) in OECD countries do not exhibit a Gaussian distribution, but are characterised by excessive kurtosis and fat tails.

Instead, these agents use simple forecasting rules (heuristics) and evaluate the forecasting performances of these rules ex post. We introduce structural reforms in the context of this behavioural model through two channels. Darst. Behavioural economics is seeing increased acceptance as a legitimate way of thinking about economic issues.

Thus, our behavioural model predicts that in the real world the output gap does not follow a normal distribution, but is characterised by excess kurtosis and fat tails. 0000003666 00000 n 0000002648 00000 n We are, of course, not alone in exploring different tracks of macroeconomic modelling. A low sensitivity of the rate of inflation with respect to the output gap is indicative of wage and price rigidities. 0000009013 00000 n The University offers grants to students who will conduct research about behavioral economics. This trade-off disappears when the economy is sufficiently flexible. The trade-offs are represented in Figure 1. We need to do better – and that is what we have been trying to do in a series of publications (De Grauwe 2012, De Grauwe and Corrado 2015, De Grauwe and Ji 2016, 2017a). We show the result for a given c1 = 1.5 (the inflation parameter) and c2 = 0.5 (the output parameter) in Figure 2. However, the results of these models depend on the assumption that the shocks are serially-correlated.

In order to understand Figure 1 let us first concentrate on the case of low flexibility (b2 = 0.1). 0000004895 00000 n 0000003135 00000 n Therefore, economics is the foundation of behavioral economics. AKERLOF: BEHAVIORAL MACROECONOMICS In what follows I shall describe how behav-ioral macroeconomists, incorporating realistic assumptions grounded in psychological and so-ciological observation, have produced models that comfortably account for each of these mac-roeconomic phenomena. Model . 0000008991 00000 n This point is obtained when flexibility is zero (i.e. - Martin Dufwenberg, University of Arizona "Sanjit Dhami's Foundations of Behavioral Economic Analysis is a major and most impressive achievement.

For values of b2 exceeding 0.5, these trade-offs become positively sloped – that is, when c1 (the inflation parameter in the Taylor rule) increases, both inflation and output volatility decline. We also found, however, that there is a limit to the comfort flexibility can provide to central bankers. Towards a behavioural foundation of macroeconomics XX, 228 S., graph.

A world without the WTO: what’s at stake? This presents the relationship between output and inflation variability that we obtain for increasing levels of flexibility, assuming that the central bank keeps its inflation control constant. Homo economicus continues to reign supreme in dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models. 2011, Gabaix 2014, Westerhoff and Franke 2012, Hommes 2016, Hommes and Lustenhouwer 2016, Muellbauer 2017; see also the recent criticism of Blanchard 2017 and the chapters in Gürkaynak and Tille 2017). 9.30 – 10.40 David 1: Welcome, Intro, & Methods in Behavioral Economics 11.00 – 12.10 Matthew 1: Normal-Science Behavioral Economics (& Camp Outline) 2.00 – 3.10 Matthew 2: Belief-Based Preferences & Intro to Prospect Theory 3.30 – 4.40 Matthew 3: Reference Dependence and News Utility In that case, the central bank can pursue a tighter inflation target without paying a price in terms of a higher output volatility. 0000002729 00000 n Clearly, this must be located to the left of the minimum point of the relationship. Nothing really can go wrong in models populated by supreme agents peacefully optimising and endowed with great cognitive abilities that allow them to understand the complexities of the world. De Grauwe, P and Y Ji (2017b), “Structural reforms and monetary policies in a behavioural macroeconomic model", CEPR, Discussion Paper no 12336. 0000010819 00000 n Behavior is always assumed to be rational: given the restrictions imposed by the primi- tives, all actors in the economic models are assumed to maximize their objectives. Macroeconomic studies emphasize decisions with a time dimension, such as various forms of investments. 0000003839 00000 n Dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models are still dominant in mainstream macroeconomics, but they are only able to explain business cycle fluctuations as the result of exogenous shocks. These reforms lead to a lowering of mark ups in the goods and labour markets and move the economy closer to perfect competition. 0000006898 00000 n �G��k>U'D���N��_�F�F,=��*ܙ���P��:�i_��^��}i��,�=�C����=�n�/��6��� ��Ņ11��Cљ7��\Ji��#�֧��n�xfsܷ���+㤈:�q$�� �6�:����I����)g��O>x��,y�z9J���䝙OW8�‡� The models further help to explain the international transmission of business cycle fluctuations. This feature of the higher moments of the output gap is generated endogenously in the model. The horizontal axis shows the standard deviations of output; the vertical axis the standard deviations of inflation. This is also the way structural reforms have been modelled in standard DSGE models (e.g. 2005, Tesfatsion and Judd 2006, Colander et al. Figure 2 allows us to obtain some insights about the optimal level of flexibility. In the 1976 book The Economic Approach to Human Behavior, the economist Gary S. Becker famously outlined a number of ideas known as the pillars of so-called ‘rational c… To support rigorous and objective research projects on U.S. economic structure, behavior, and performance whose findings inform and strengthen decision-making by … There is a growing number of researchers developing ‘agent-based’ models and ‘behavioural’ macroeconomic models (Alfarano et al. 2008, Farmer 2006, Farmer and Foley 2009, Gatti et al. In order to do so, we constructed policy trade-offs of the central bank for different levels of flexibility. This downward movement implies that increasing flexibility creates a ‘win-win’ situation in that both the volatility of output and inflation decline with increasing flexibility. That is, optimism (pessimism) leads to an increase (decline) in output, and the increase (decline) in output in term intensifies optimism (pessimism) (De Grauwe 2012, De Grauwe and Ji 2017a). One of the most important is the effect of fairness considerations on wages and employment relationships. Hommes, C (2016), “Behavioural macroeconomics with heterogeneous expectations and interacting agents”, Discussion Paper, CenDEF, University of Amsterdam. 0000009699 00000 n relates to the decision-making process behind an economic outcome of individuals and institutions Research-based policy analysis and commentary from leading economists, Behavioural economics is also useful in macroeconomics, Paul De Grauwe, Yuemei Ji 01 November 2017. "These Lectures on Behavioral Macroeconomics remind us that De Grauwe is also an excellent macroeconomic theorist and a wonderful narrator. 0000001826 00000 n This may lead to the conclusion that flexibility is always welfare improving – but that is not the case. As the degree of flexibility increases, we observe that the trade-off curves shift to the left and become less negatively sloped. Presently, many macroeconomic models, representing different theories, [4] are derived by aggregating microeconomic models allowing economists to test them with both macroeconomic and … 0000004164 00000 n 0000012232 00000 n 0000007571 00000 n 0000001684 00000 n De Grauwe, P and C Macchiarelli (2015) “Animal spirits and credit cycles”, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control 59: 95-117. One good example is the recent effort to integrate the financial sector in DSGE models to explain the business cycle. 0000014848 00000 n The contrast with standard DSGE-models is significant. It is not the result of imposing such a feature on the stochastic shocks hitting the economy. 0000003600 00000 n However, when we go too far with structural reforms, we go beyond the minimum point on the line.

There is now a significant body of empirical evidence showing that the output gaps (and also the growth of output) in OECD countries do not exhibit a Gaussian distribution, but are characterised by excessive kurtosis and fat tails.

We introduce structural reforms in the context of this behavioural model through two channels. Darst. Behavioural economics is seeing increased acceptance as a legitimate way of thinking about economic issues.

Thus, our behavioural model predicts that in the real world the output gap does not follow a normal distribution, but is characterised by excess kurtosis and fat tails. 0000003666 00000 n 0000002648 00000 n We are, of course, not alone in exploring different tracks of macroeconomic modelling. A low sensitivity of the rate of inflation with respect to the output gap is indicative of wage and price rigidities. 0000009013 00000 n The University offers grants to students who will conduct research about behavioral economics. This trade-off disappears when the economy is sufficiently flexible. The trade-offs are represented in Figure 1. We need to do better – and that is what we have been trying to do in a series of publications (De Grauwe 2012, De Grauwe and Corrado 2015, De Grauwe and Ji 2016, 2017a). We show the result for a given c1 = 1.5 (the inflation parameter) and c2 = 0.5 (the output parameter) in Figure 2. However, the results of these models depend on the assumption that the shocks are serially-correlated.

In order to understand Figure 1 let us first concentrate on the case of low flexibility (b2 = 0.1). 0000004895 00000 n 0000003135 00000 n Therefore, economics is the foundation of behavioral economics. AKERLOF: BEHAVIORAL MACROECONOMICS In what follows I shall describe how behav-ioral macroeconomists, incorporating realistic assumptions grounded in psychological and so-ciological observation, have produced models that comfortably account for each of these mac-roeconomic phenomena. Model . 0000008991 00000 n This point is obtained when flexibility is zero (i.e. - Martin Dufwenberg, University of Arizona "Sanjit Dhami's Foundations of Behavioral Economic Analysis is a major and most impressive achievement.

In general, in more flexible economies central banks do not face the same kind of uncomfortable trade-offs as in rigid economies.

Gürkaynak, R and C Tille (2017), “DSGE models in the conduct of policy: Use as Intended”, VoxEU. �3ȥ�(������g��a��g�� This means that if the central bank keeps its inflation control unchanged, increasing flexibility creates a new trade-off, which is negatively sloped – that is, more flexibility then reduces output volatility at the expense of more inflation variability. 0000011518 00000 n Colander, D, P Howitt, A Kirman, A Leijonhufvud and P Mehrling (2008), "Beyond DSGE models: Toward an empirically based macroeconomics", American Economic Review 98(2): 236-40. For values of b2 exceeding 0.5, these trade-offs become positively sloped – that is, when c1 (the inflation parameter in the Taylor rule) increases, both inflation and output volatility decline. We also found, however, that there is a limit to the comfort flexibility can provide to central bankers. Towards a behavioural foundation of macroeconomics XX, 228 S., graph. Alfarano, S, T Lux and F Wagner (2005), “Estimation of agent-based models: The case of an asymmetric herding model”, Computational Economics 26: 19–49. 0000003307 00000 n This is much less the case in mainstream macroeconomics, however. further increases in flexibility lead to less volatility of output at the expense of increasing inflation volatility). A world without the WTO: what’s at stake? This presents the relationship between output and inflation variability that we obtain for increasing levels of flexibility, assuming that the central bank keeps its inflation control constant. Homo economicus continues to reign supreme in dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models. 2011, Gabaix 2014, Westerhoff and Franke 2012, Hommes 2016, Hommes and Lustenhouwer 2016, Muellbauer 2017; see also the recent criticism of Blanchard 2017 and the chapters in Gürkaynak and Tille 2017). 9.30 – 10.40 David 1: Welcome, Intro, & Methods in Behavioral Economics 11.00 – 12.10 Matthew 1: Normal-Science Behavioral Economics (& Camp Outline) 2.00 – 3.10 Matthew 2: Belief-Based Preferences & Intro to Prospect Theory 3.30 – 4.40 Matthew 3: Reference Dependence and News Utility In that case, the central bank can pursue a tighter inflation target without paying a price in terms of a higher output volatility. 0000002729 00000 n Clearly, this must be located to the left of the minimum point of the relationship. Nothing really can go wrong in models populated by supreme agents peacefully optimising and endowed with great cognitive abilities that allow them to understand the complexities of the world. De Grauwe, P and Y Ji (2017b), “Structural reforms and monetary policies in a behavioural macroeconomic model", CEPR, Discussion Paper no 12336. 0000010819 00000 n Behavior is always assumed to be rational: given the restrictions imposed by the primi- tives, all actors in the economic models are assumed to maximize their objectives. Macroeconomic studies emphasize decisions with a time dimension, such as various forms of investments. 0000003839 00000 n Dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models are still dominant in mainstream macroeconomics, but they are only able to explain business cycle fluctuations as the result of exogenous shocks. These reforms lead to a lowering of mark ups in the goods and labour markets and move the economy closer to perfect competition. 0000006898 00000 n �G��k>U'D���N��_�F�F,=��*ܙ���P��:�i_��^��}i��,�=�C����=�n�/��6��� ��Ņ11��Cљ7��\Ji��#�֧��n�xfsܷ���+㤈:�q$�� �6�:����I����)g��O>x��,y�z9J���䝙OW8�‡� The models further help to explain the international transmission of business cycle fluctuations. This feature of the higher moments of the output gap is generated endogenously in the model. The horizontal axis shows the standard deviations of output; the vertical axis the standard deviations of inflation. This is also the way structural reforms have been modelled in standard DSGE models (e.g. 2005, Tesfatsion and Judd 2006, Colander et al. Figure 2 allows us to obtain some insights about the optimal level of flexibility. In the 1976 book The Economic Approach to Human Behavior, the economist Gary S. Becker famously outlined a number of ideas known as the pillars of so-called ‘rational c… To support rigorous and objective research projects on U.S. economic structure, behavior, and performance whose findings inform and strengthen decision-making by … There is a growing number of researchers developing ‘agent-based’ models and ‘behavioural’ macroeconomic models (Alfarano et al. 2008, Farmer 2006, Farmer and Foley 2009, Gatti et al. In order to do so, we constructed policy trade-offs of the central bank for different levels of flexibility. This downward movement implies that increasing flexibility creates a ‘win-win’ situation in that both the volatility of output and inflation decline with increasing flexibility. That is, optimism (pessimism) leads to an increase (decline) in output, and the increase (decline) in output in term intensifies optimism (pessimism) (De Grauwe 2012, De Grauwe and Ji 2017a). One of the most important is the effect of fairness considerations on wages and employment relationships. Hommes, C (2016), “Behavioural macroeconomics with heterogeneous expectations and interacting agents”, Discussion Paper, CenDEF, University of Amsterdam. 0000009699 00000 n relates to the decision-making process behind an economic outcome of individuals and institutions Research-based policy analysis and commentary from leading economists, Behavioural economics is also useful in macroeconomics, Paul De Grauwe, Yuemei Ji 01 November 2017. "These Lectures on Behavioral Macroeconomics remind us that De Grauwe is also an excellent macroeconomic theorist and a wonderful narrator. 0000001826 00000 n This may lead to the conclusion that flexibility is always welfare improving – but that is not the case. As the degree of flexibility increases, we observe that the trade-off curves shift to the left and become less negatively sloped. Presently, many macroeconomic models, representing different theories, [4] are derived by aggregating microeconomic models allowing economists to test them with both macroeconomic and … 0000004164 00000 n 0000012232 00000 n 0000007571 00000 n 0000001684 00000 n De Grauwe, P and C Macchiarelli (2015) “Animal spirits and credit cycles”, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control 59: 95-117. One good example is the recent effort to integrate the financial sector in DSGE models to explain the business cycle. 0000014848 00000 n The contrast with standard DSGE-models is significant. It is not the result of imposing such a feature on the stochastic shocks hitting the economy. 0000003600 00000 n However, when we go too far with structural reforms, we go beyond the minimum point on the line.

There is now a significant body of empirical evidence showing that the output gaps (and also the growth of output) in OECD countries do not exhibit a Gaussian distribution, but are characterised by excessive kurtosis and fat tails. This is provided under the Russell Sage Foundation. Figure 2 The optimal level of flexibility.

Instead, these agents use simple forecasting rules (heuristics) and evaluate the forecasting performances of these rules ex post. We introduce structural reforms in the context of this behavioural model through two channels. Darst. Behavioural economics is seeing increased acceptance as a legitimate way of thinking about economic issues.

Thus, our behavioural model predicts that in the real world the output gap does not follow a normal distribution, but is characterised by excess kurtosis and fat tails. 0000003666 00000 n 0000002648 00000 n We are, of course, not alone in exploring different tracks of macroeconomic modelling. A low sensitivity of the rate of inflation with respect to the output gap is indicative of wage and price rigidities. 0000009013 00000 n The University offers grants to students who will conduct research about behavioral economics. This trade-off disappears when the economy is sufficiently flexible. The trade-offs are represented in Figure 1. We need to do better – and that is what we have been trying to do in a series of publications (De Grauwe 2012, De Grauwe and Corrado 2015, De Grauwe and Ji 2016, 2017a). We show the result for a given c1 = 1.5 (the inflation parameter) and c2 = 0.5 (the output parameter) in Figure 2. However, the results of these models depend on the assumption that the shocks are serially-correlated. We need to do better – and that is what we have been trying to do in a series of publications (De Grauwe 2012, De Grauwe and Corrado 2015, De Grauwe and Ji 2016, 2017a). 2012, Everaert and Schule 2006, Gomes et al.

These measure the inflation and output volatility choices the central bank faces when it increases its inflation control (measured by the sensitivity of the interest rate to changes in inflation in the Taylor rule). In an ideal world, defaults, frames, and price anchors would not have any bearing on consumer choices. 0000013738 00000 n The foundation of behavioral finance is an area based on an interdisciplinary approach including scholars from the social sciences and business schools. These models find it difficult to explain the fat tails in the distribution of the output gap.
