Hysteresis and the Australian economy

Timothy Watson, PhD Student, CAMA

In this seminar Timothy Watson will present his thesis proposal review on ‘Hysteresis and the Australian Economy’.

Timothy’s PhD research will investigate output and unemployment fiscal multipliers in Australia, and how these vary based on capacity utilisation and whether fiscal policy is conducted on a counter or pro cyclical basis. It will also explore cross-country evidence concerning how multipliers differ based on the above factors and also with reference to differences in exchange rate regimes, openness, government and private debt, and monetary policy settings. Based on these results, he will explore what new features need to be incorporated into macroeconomic models of the Australian economy to reflect the empirical regularities observed, providing new insights into the optimal conduct of macroeconomic policy.
