Essays in macroeconomic policy
- This dissertation evaluates the impact of government policies using macroeconomic tools. The first policy I study is Government-Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs). I use an assignment model to estimate the potential impact on the housing market if GSEs were eliminated. Because GSEs provide target subsidies to low quality segments of the housing market, their elimination would affect those segments the most. The second policy I study is the U.S. sanctions on Iran. I employ econometric tools to estimate the effect of the sanctions on inflation, GDP, and exchange rate in Iran.
