Computational Economics, Financial Markets and Policy

This course offers a revolutionary and interdisciplinary study of macro-economics and financial regulation and provides a rigorous training in policy design. By using a multi-agent computational and simulation modelling approach to complement students work in statistics and econometrics, they investigate a wide array of economic phenomena that can also aid in policy design. Students will be given laboratory based instruction to build a range of agent based models that include systemic risk analysis with financial networks and market micro-structure of stock markets.
