ERC Advanced Investigator Grants (ERC Advanced Grant) are offered to recognize and promote the work of European researchers and establish the EU a global leader in research.. The ERC received a total of 2167 applications for Advanced Grants from applicants representing 50 nationalities and linked to host institutions in 36 different countries.. The Advanced Grants aim to encourage risk-taking and interdisciplinarity, and support pioneering frontier research projects.. They complement the ERC Starting Grants by targeting researchers who have already established themselves as independent research leaders in their own right..

Joachim Voth (Barcelona GSE and CREI) is an ICREA Research Professor and Director of the Barcelona GSE..

Voth, The importance of this research lies in the fact that most of our results about asset prices come from periods of tranquil social, economic, and political conditions.. When times are tough, the data often disappears..

In continuation, the second part of the project is motivated by the significant changes in the co-movements among some key macro variables that have accompanied the recent period of low macroeconomic volatility (the so-called Great Moderation).. One objective of the proposed research is to understand the role that structural change in the labor market may have played as a source of those changes.. In addition, the project will include an analysis of the consequences that such structural changes may have had on wage setting, their ability to account for the apparent increase in wage flexibility during the recent period, and the implications for the conduct and design of monetary policy..
