The Cambridge-INET Institute

 

The "Transmission Mechanisms and Economic Policy" theme at the Cambridge-INET Institute brings together researchers conducting fundamental research in macroeconomics. We use a variety of approaches – encompassing micro and macro econometrics, macro models and historical and institutional analysis – to develop theoretical and empirical work on a wide range of issues, from firm growth and firm churning to household level savings and inequality, from unemployment dynamics to supply chains, from the analysis of monetary policy to international finance and global imbalances. Our research aims to generate inputs for stabilisation and structural policy.
