The course aims to serve two purposes: (1) to cover in detail various methods used in empirical microeconomics research; and (2) to give an overview of topics in empirical political economy. Empirical methodologies will include non-experimental approaches, experiments, natural experiments, and structural methods. Applications will be primarily in political economy, but occasionally papers from other fields of economics such as industrial organization, labor economics, and development economics. Grades will be based on a research proposal, mock referee reports, and presentation.
