Tinbergen Institute Summer School 2017 "Research on Productivity, Trade, and Growth: Theory and Practice"
This course provides a self-contained set of lectures and tutorials to bring PhD students and practitioners up to speed in the area of empirical research using firm-level data. The course starts with an introduction to models of firm dynamics. Next, attention is paid to estimation of productivity, including methods to cope with sample selection, endogeneity of inputs, and lack of firm-level quality adjusted prices. Finally, the course discusses recent empirical work on structural modeling of productivity, trade and growth. Besides theory, the course will include a set of tutorials on data handling, programming, and algorithms for empirical applications, as well as daily hands-on practical and test sessions. To enroll, students are expected to have finished the equivalent of first-year PhD economics and econometrics courses and have some experience in applied (econometric) research.
