Can the federal reserve affect oil shocks?
Gjergj Ndoci has worked closely with professor Jermaine Moulton on a research project to understand the causal relationship between federal reserve interest rates and oil price shocks.
Their original research arose from an Econometrics class project in Gjergj’s sophomore year, and with Jermaine’s continued mentorship, Gjergj has revised the paper and had it accepted at the Midwest Economics Association’s annual conference.
Gjergj will travel to St. Louis during spring break to present the paper and attend an invited session about internships at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.
