Nathan is a PhD student in the field of Economics at Bar Ilan University. His research deals with the process of forming expectations and its implications for macroeconomic analysis, stressing the role of information rigidities. By challenging the dominant literature, Nathan hopes to contribute to the new wave of research on macroeconomic expectations, using new approaches and advanced techniques to identify information rigidities in expectations and characterize their nature. He also wishes to extend the new theory to the open economy as seen in Israel. In doing so he hopes to develop recommendations for local economic policy.
