The influence of human nature on financial decisions is under deep investigation in academic disciplines. Finance has always been connected with psychology, behavioral theory and even with neurology in modern research. The availability of big data, fast communication channels, information openness, and the development of computer science have formed the base of a great number of financial innovations.
This Special Issue “Computational Macroeconomics” seeks empirical research papers that employ modern data science analysis methodologies and explore the wide range of publicly available open access big data databases on the following theoretical topics related to financial markets and the world economy. First, monetary policy, international trade liberalization and systemic risk with the scope of forecasting and preventing financial crises, liquidity problems in real estate and mortgage markets. Second, research in emerging economies, including international entrepreneurship in high economic growth countries such as China, India, and Mexico; financial market volatility shocks and spillover effects in oil-dependent countries such as Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) members (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Bahrain) and North-East Asian economies; and agricultural transformation in rural countries such as Ethiopia and Kenya. Third, high frequency and informed trading on financial markets with particular attention to information content, analysts recommendations, and information asymmetry. Fourth, there is emerging research field in behavioral finance such as money illusions and heterogeneous beliefs that are connected to traditional financial theory concepts like risk aversion, risk sharing, risk premium, risk measures, asset pricing. Fifth, banking is strongly connected to financial market disciplines, thus we will include current research studies of bank lending and risk taking, bank capital requirements, stress testing, bank default risk, credit default swap spreads, and yield spreads.
