Economic and political determinants of policy responses to crises

This project will organize a systematic database of policies implemented in response to crises, focusing on fiscal and monetary measures. The goal is to identify policy action rather than simply looking at endogenous outcome variables. The data this research will provide will allow a large number of researchers to carry out original studies and analysis on this topic. The project aims to explain the different policy responses of various countries. It will distinguish objective constraints and structural country-specific characteristics from political constraints and objectives. The issue is whether one can identify some regularity in the policy response associated with ideological elements characterizing governments and political regimes. And finally, the project will analyze the impact of different sequences of macroeconomic and financial policies on the transition of an economy from recession to expansion after a financial crisis.
