Political Economics and Macroeconomic Policy
Traditional macroeconomic policy analysis asks the positive question of how the economy responds to alternative, but exogenous, policy actions or rules. Knowing these responses, the analyst can go to the normative problem of policy advice, The best action or rule is selected, given a specific obkective function. But as macroeconomists, we should also be able to shed light on a more ambitious set of questions. Why is it that we observe such different inflation rates across countries and time?, etc.
