This short course aims to give tools to students for entering the frontier of research regarding models of wealth-inequality determinants and dynamics. The focus will be on presenting general-purpose analytical and computational techniques that enable students to replicate and extend frontier research papers in these areas. The course will focus on wealth-inequality models.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
Translate discrete-time models into their continuous-time counterparts using simple continuous-time stochastic calculus.
Use and develop numerical techniques of dynamic optimization (Matlab) for solving continuous-time models for addressing Economics/Finance questions.
Work independently to expand the research frontier of Heterogeneous Agent models
Develop new policy-evaluation tools.
