Expectations are central to all forward-looking decisions households make. Yet, interest in the measurement and determinants of subjective expectations waned following the rational expectations revolution. More recently, however, there has been growing attention to ways of eliciting and measuring the inflation expectations of consumers. Research has documented deviations from full information rational expectations including upward biases and cross-sectional dispersion as well as the crucial role that grocery and energy inflation play in shaping inflation expectations.
The course will first provide a methodological overview on eliciting expectations and discuss stylized facts about inflation expectations. It will move on to discuss the determinants of inflation expectations and how these expectations shape individuals’ consumption, savings, leverage and investment decisions. We will then study how central banks and governments can manage the expectations of households through policy interventions and communication. Finally, we will discuss the design of information provision and acquisition experiments based on the case of papers.
The course is open to PhD students (local and international), postgraduate, and professionals who wish to widen their knowledge on Subjective Inflation Expectations: Measurement, Determinants, and Effects.
