Macroeconomics is the branch of economics that deals with the study of aggregate economic variables. The macroeconomic study can be divided into a long-term study, which implies being analyzed economic growth, or may be a short-term study that focuses on the analysis of economic cycles. In INESAD it is to analyze both the short and the long term emphasizing the analysis of economic policies to promote long-term growth and therefore socio-economic development; but also to analyze those fiscal or monetary policies to smooth out business cycles.

Macroeconomic analysis that promotes INESAD is a scientific and rigorous analysis, based on data and models to replicate what the data show and propose lines of economic policy, tested by these models. Beyond the paradigms that are behind macroeconomic models in INESAD we are working to become a benchmark nationally and internationally in the use of general equilibrium models, both models of computable general equilibrium (CGE) and general equilibrium models dynamic and stochastic (DSGE).

Also in INESAD we propose responses to macroeconomic problems based on structural analysis, seeking lessons from similar experiences, as past experiences. It is in this sense that the analysis of historical data as well as the construction of new databases, are priorities in macroeconomic analysis we perform.
