A key development in the “dismal science” has been the incorporation of explicit heterogeneity into models of the macroeconomy. As a result of taking micro data seriously, these theories study macroeconomic questions in terms of distributions of microeconomic variables like income or wealth rather than just aggregates. This approach opens up the door to examining the distributional implications of macroeconomic trends, shocks or policies, and to examine the two-way interaction between these distributions and the macroeconomy.
DisMaLS will advance this “distributional macroeconomics” agenda both theoretically and empirically. Theoretically, it will do so by developing new theories of the income and wealth distributions and their interactions with the macroeconomy in both the long and short run. Empirically, DisMaLS will bring to the table high-quality Norwegian administrative data to discipline and enrich these theories.
In terms of long-run trends, a striking feature regarding economic growth in many developed countries is that it has been unequally distributed. For example, in the U.S., real household incomes have grown by roughly two percent per year on average but income percentiles corresponding to the bottom 50% of the distribution have stagnated since the 1970s. DisMaLS will use its theory of income and wealth distribution to examine the potential drivers of these distributional trends, for example automation and tax policy.
Turning to the short-run, DisMaLS aims to understand the causes of infrequent but large economic crises, like the Great Recession. I aim to develop a quantitative macroeconomic theory that incorporates asset price booms driven by individuals switching out of liquid assets to buy real or illiquid financial assets, and crashes driven by the reverse movement. As part of the project, I aim to develop a new methodology for solving heterogeneous agent models with aggregate risk and both micro and macro non-linearities.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (email@example.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
