Ellen R. McGrattan
Ellen McGrattan is a visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution, a professor of economics at the University of Minnesota, and the director of the Heller-Hurwicz Economics Institute.
Her research is concerned with the impact of monetary and fiscal policy—in particular the effects on GDP, investment, hours, productivity, the stock market, and international capital flows.
