The Fellows will conduct their own research on a broad range of topics, including research in inequality, and its links with macroeconomics and market power, including in the labor market; macroeconomics, research advancing our understanding of the explanations of deep downturns and structural transformations, macro-economic externalities, financial market and other market interlinkages, etc.; macroeconomic and structural implications of the pandemic; inflation; the role expectations and deep uncertainty for macroeconomic fluctuations and crises; sovereign debt crises resolution; analyses of market power and mis- and disinformation, including in the media, implications for systemic economic performance, and appropriate and effective policy responses, and artificial intelligence and its effects on macroeconomic dynamics, distribution and long-run growth. The fellowships will last up to one year in duration, and occasionally, subject to the availability of funds, renewed for a second year, and the Fellows will participate in the research community at Columbia.
