Vaclav Zdarek

Teaching Fellow, PhD Student

I am a PhD Economics Candidate in the Department of Economics.
My research investigates two rather broadly defined topics: (1) fiscal policy (constraints, effects and measures, interactions and spillovers) in a monetary union and (2) various aspects of households' behaviour in transition countries, and (3) networks.

Research Interests

  • Household Consumption, Saving & Labour Supply Behaviour
  • International (Macro)economics
  • Fiscal and Monetary Policy
  • Networks
  • Applied (Macro)econometrics
