Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are soliciting manuscripts for a Special Issue aiming to bring together new research in the field of macroeconomics, environment and energy economics.

External energy shocks have been a major force behind the recent increase in aggregate inflation. On the other hand, in the face of the increasing uncertainty about future prices which appears to be emanating from the supply side, policymakers tend to respond by raising the interest rate which tends to slow growth. Furthermore, conventional macroeconomic models employed for policy design often neglect the natural environment. What is the role of macroeconomic policy in combating climate change while maintaining economic stability? Understanding the relationship between the real activity and energy market volatility in an economy that interacts with environmental externalities is of significant relevance to policy and building capacity around crisis responses.

This Special Issue focuses on the broad topic of dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models and their implications for economic cycles and policy. It involves novel research and empirical findings on the use of DSGE models with an emphasis on the interactions between energy markets, climate policies and the aggregate economy. We invite submissions related to a wide array of topics within the framework of DSGE and quantitative economic analysis, including, but are not limited to, the propagation of energy shocks, forms of climate risks, technological, environmental and geo-political challenges, and appropriate policy measures to mitigate their adverse effects. Papers on broader topics such as monetary and fiscal policy, economic volatility, business cycles, growth, welfare, inflation and emissions, digital and environmental economics, and emerging markets are also welcome.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.
