Abstract: This dissertation consists of three essays that deal with macroeconomic topics and are linked by a common method, the computational experiment. The essays give answers to quantitative questions on the post-war U.S. macroeconomy. Two essays evaluate episodes of contemporary economic policy: namely, the role of the Ford/Carter deregulation for the productivity growth resurgence in the early 1990s and the contribution of the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 to the housing boom of the 2000s. Another essay deals with the connection between business cycle fluctuations and economic growth during the post-war period. The essay also contributes to a discussion about policy proposals of countercyclical R&D subsidies.
