2016-06-08 Polland: Regional Economic Dynamics and the Effects of Monetary Policy


Regional Economic Dynamics and the Effects of Monetary Policy

Description of the project offered: 
Research project objectives:

Economic dynamics has a spatial dimension. This dimension results from the occurrence of
idionsyncratic regional shocks, regional asymmetry of responses to common shocks and transmission
of the shocks to neighbouring regions. All the above mentioned are sourced in some region-specific
features, often of structural nature.
As many earlier studies have shown, Poland is a country with profoundly diverse economic and social
structures across its regions, which makes the problem of uneven dynamics and asymmetric monetary
policy effects especially relevant. Yet it remains the only large EU country, where these problems
were not given comprehensive examination and explanation so far.
The aim of this project is to fill this gap by investigating regional differences in economic dynamics in
Poland, identifying sources of these differences, tracking dynamic linkages between regions and
indicating their impact on the asymmetry of monetary policy effects.
Project proposer:   Pawel Gajewski ()

Description of the collaboration sought: 
We seek researchers to develop regional CGE models and perform simulations with these models as well as conduct regional economic analyses with PVAR models. Fluency in English and proven track of publications in JCR-indexed journals in the field of regional economic dynamics are critical.
