This post by John Cochrane points to a lot of neat papers. I imagine the Gorton and Ordonez paper will get the most attention (eg Noah Smith’s tweet) – Gorton’s view of what happened during the global financial crisis is compelling, and his ‘bank run in the shadow banking system’ thesis is what I use to understand the GFC.
I had no idea that Woodford did neuroeconomic models of discrete choice – this is an area I’m ridiculously interested in. I have his “interest and prices” sitting next to me, and it is a very good monetary economics book, but neuroeconomics is a whole other field! Did anyone else know this? Does anyone else have any extra literature I should take a look at? I certainly know what I’ll be reading before bed tonight!
