Is there a transatlantic divide in undergraduate macroeconomics teaching?

No 1322, Economics Working Paper Series from University of St. Gallen, School of Economics and Political Science

Abstract: The global financial crisis triggered different policy responses in Europe and the United States. Interestingly, survey results suggest that there is also a significant difference in how undergraduate macroeconomics instructors responded to the crisis, with U.S. instructors placing significantly more emphasis on financial topics than their European peers. This note considers whether such differences may be attributed to differences in instructors’ profiles and teaching environments. The results suggest that, rather than explaining this gap, the transatlantic divide becomes even wider when analyzed in a multivariate setting.
