Welcome to the 2017 web site of the course "Monetary Policy" offered at the Master's Programme at Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen. On this site you will find a host of relevant information, and the page will be regularly updated. You should therefore visit this site at least thrice a week to stay up to date.


Limited use of Absalon

As I firmly believe in openness in education and research, I do not want to run a course with a web site hidden for the general public. So this site, and not the Absalon site, will be my official certified web-resource for the course. The only function of Absalon will be to collect e-mail adresses (in case I need to send you important information quickly), and to run evaluations. Otherwise, in terms of academic contents, this is the place to be.

Welcome! I hope you will enjoy the course!
