Faculty Spotlight

Eric Leeper

Eric Leeper

Eric Leeper's research and teaching interests center on macroeconomics and monetary economics, with a special emphasis on monetary and fiscal policy analysis. One line of his research explores the theoretical and empirical implications of the dynamic interactions between monetary and fiscal policy. Another line studies empirical aspects of policy. Much of his research employs formal stochastic general equilibrium models and/or informal supply and demand analysis to interpret economic time series. Recent work explores the implications of recurring changes in policy regime in the context of dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models.
