Macroeconomics Research Group on Macroeconomics, headed by Professor Dr. Winfried Koeniger. We do research on macroeconomic issues, with a particular interest in consumption, financial markets and labor markets. For this purpose we use and develop quantitative methods to answer policy-relevant macroeconomic questions. Furthermore, we are engaged in initiatives to monitor consumption in Switzerland and to understand the consequences of the Covid-19 for society. Further information on these projects and initiatives is available on the right (see “More on Topic”).
