Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on understanding the dynamics of government responses to crises, economic fallout, business cycle recessions, and shocks. Macroeconomic responses vary depending on the nature of the shock and country circumstances. Adding up the different measures, such as tax and spending, loans and guarantees, monetary instruments, and foreign exchange operations, makes it challenging to assess the efficiency of the aggregate policy environment and crisis-contamination measures. 

We welcome empirical papers on the application of new types of macroeconomic models in different countries to explain economic policies in various fields. We welcome submissions covering topics that include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following issues:

  • The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on global economies and sector-wide performance measures. 
  • Business cycle stabilization policies to foster economic re-convergence.
  • The scope and limits of cross-country comparisons in response to shocks and applied mitigation policies.
  • The role of automatic stabilizers, fiscal stimulus, and optimal monetary policies in stabilizing economies. 
  • The role of behavioral nudges in the design of public policies.
