This Essex Finance Centre (EFiC) research seminar welcomes guest speaker Professor Christiane Baumeister as she explores methods for structural interpretation of vector autoregressions. 

Seminar details

This seminar examines methods for structural interpretation of vector autoregressions when the identifying information is regarded as imperfect or incomplete.

It suggests that a Bayesian approach offers a unifying theme for guiding inference in such settings.

Among other advantages, the unified approach solves a problem with calculating elasticities that appears not to have been recognized by earlier researchers.

The presentation also call attention to some computational concerns of which researchers who approach this problem using other methods should be aware.



This seminar is free to attend and we welcome you to share with your friends, colleagues and classmates.

We ask that you email the organiser for the details on how to join.
