Master Thesis (UFSC, 2019)

Assessing the Impact of conventional Monetary Policy on the Capital-Labor ratio in Brazil

    • Short summary: motivated by the recent developments in the literature about heterogeneous effects of monetary policy, especially on the redistribution of income and wealth, in this work I used a TVP-VAR with Wishart stochastic volatility to assess if monetary policy shocks affect the functional distribution of income. This was my master thesis at UFSC and I am working (at a slow pace) on the paper version. In particular, I am extending the model to have shrinkage in the coefficients. Click here for some slides.
