Event Details

What are the barriers and the prospects for economic growth in Greece? At this research seminar Professor Apostolis Philippopoulos and Dr George Economides will present their study of the Greek economy that has a twofold aim: first to conduct a decomposition analysis to quantify the relative contribution of various driving forces, as they are in the data, to the output loss since 2008. Second, building upon the first step, the two speakers search for counter-factual scenaria that could have possibly given better outcomes. The vehicle of analysis is a DSGE model that contains the key features of the Greek economy.
