The latest IMF World Economic Outlook is making headlines in the financial market news! Chapter 2 of the report, co-authored by Josef Platzer (PhD Class of 2021), builds on his Job Market Paper, Secular Drivers of the Natural Rate of Interest in the United States: A Quantitative Evaluation, and shows that interest rates are likely coming back toward pre-pandemic lows after the current inflationary episode has passed. The JMP is also co-authored with another previous student, Marcel Peruffo (PhD Class of 2022). Congratulations to Josef and Marcel!
