The course will cover the most recent literature on how to model the term structure of bond yields including the challenges posed by the asymmetric behavior of yields near their lower bound. Jens Christensen will teach the course. It is primarily aimed at participants in the Euro Area Business Cycle Network but applications will also be considered from doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers and economists working in central banks and government institutions outside of the network, as well as commercial organisations (fees applicable for non-network organisations).

Organiser: Prof. Massimiliano Marcellino – Bocconi University
