About Jean Falconer

Jean Falconer teaches undergraduate courses in macroeconomics and econometrics. She is an applied macroeconomist with a particular interest in macroeconomic policy.

Scholarship and research interests

Falconer’s recent work has focused primarily on the implementation of fiscal policy in the United States. Specifically, she uses Bayesian econometric techniques to examine whether Congress has tended to change government spending and taxes in a systematic manner in response to changes in economic and political conditions, and to determine the form these policy responses have tended to take. She also has done research on possible interactions between fiscal and monetary policy to determine, for example, whether the Federal Reserve's responses to economic developments depend, in part, on recent fiscal policy.
