Abstract: This thesis comprises three self-contained chapters that deal with macro-finance, growth and development topics. All essays use an applied theory approach to investigate the impact of frictions on the macroeconomy through their effect on individual incentives. In Chapter 2, I study how banks’ exposure to their home country sovereign default risk affects unconventional monetary policy in a monetary union. Chapter 3 finds asymmetric information friction to be a possible cause for low fertility across developed countries. Chapter 4 is joint work with Salvatore Piccolo, in which we study how stronger family ties reduce the quality of institutions and increase income inequality in a country.
