Tau Unbound

The importance of Macroeconomics

Prof. Eran Yashiv, The Eitan Berglas School of Economics

Our new episode of TAU Unbound highlights the importance of Macroeconomics, which focuses on how an overall economic structure (markets, businesses, consumers, and governments) perform, react and influences our lives.

Aharoni & Yashiv discuss economy-wide phenomena such as inflation, price levels, rate of economic growth, national income, gross domestic product (GDP), and changes in unemployment. Prof. Yashiv is a Professor at The Eitan Berglas School of Economics at Tel Aviv University and earned his other degrees from LSE (London School of Economics and UCL (University College London). His research spans a number of themes, including labor market frictions in business cycles, asset pricing, economic and public health epidemic management policy, and minorities and migration issues.

He has been working on epidemic management issues from an economics and public health perspective: from April 2020 collaborating with system biologists at the Weizmann Institute of Science and from September 2022 scientists at Georgia Tech.

Another line of research he pursues pertains to the labor market of Palestinian Arabs in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza. The latter papers have been published in academic journals and as policy papers.
