We will be talking a little about political business cycles (PBC) this next club meeting and I want to put up some of the resources that I will be drawing from if anyone wanted to take a look at them before the meeting. Once I started digging, the topic got really interesting really quickly.
A short intro video on Youtube – here
A short paper discussing the Nixon administration’s PBC- here
A short paper discussing some of the mathematical models involved in the PBC theory – here
A longer paper from NBER discussing the last 25 years of research of PBC’s – here
Also, don’t forget to bring your résumé!
