Regional Disparities: Theory and Structural Estimation
|Lecturer:||Jung / Abashishvili|
|Type:||lecture and exercise|
|Date and place:||tba|
|Type of examination:||written exam|
This class is designed for advanced master students and graduate students who are willing to advance their knowledge in the approaches of structural estimation. The lecture starts with a short introduction to causal graphs and their importance in economic modelling. Afterwards, students will have the possibility to advance their knowledge in structural econometrics, such as GMM estimation and Maximum Liklihood Inference. The remaining part of the class will introduce students to state of the art research in regional economics with an explicit structural estimation design. Furthermore, participants of the class will be able to get hands-on experience in Dynamic Discrete Choice Models.
