Macroeconomics and International

Macroeconomics and International Economics

The Macro and International Economics Research Group consists of faculty and PhD students and is primarily a research group. Most of the interaction centres around our weekly seminar and workshop, but we also take responsibility for the teaching curriculum in macroeconomics, international finance and international trade. Our members are also affiliated with the Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy (CAGE), the Centre for Macroeconomics (CfM), the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR), and the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR). We frequently host visitors for research seminars or longer stays.

At the heart of the group's interaction are the weekly seminar for external visitors and a weekly workshop for internal faculty and PhD students. Our other events include annual workshops in empirical macro (with Warwick Business School), international trade (with CAGE) and the "Micro and Macro" workshops (with the Econometrics and Labour Group), occasional conferences, an internal summer workshop, reading groups, and a welcome lunch for the new PhD students at the start of the academic year.

MIEW (Macro/International Economics Workshop) - Andrea Guerrieri D'Amati
S2.79

Andrea will present a project he has been working on with Gavin Hassall

Title: Embracing the Future: Tense Patterns and Forward-Looking Monetary Policy.

Abstract : This paper explores how the language used in Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting minutes relates to future monetary policy and impacts financial markets. We construct a measure of future-oriented language using a Structural Topic Model combined with a Large Language Model. Regressing stock market reactions on the share of future-oriented language for each topic shows that increased discussion of GDP and monetary policy in the future tense associates with stock price increases. This suggests forward-looking communication provides valuable signals to investors about central bank intentions. The results demonstrate subtle variations in central bank communications can sway expectations and risk assessments, which highlights the importance of thoughtful transparency practices when conveying policy deliberations to the public.
