Hello, my name is Nadia Ruiz and I am PhD candidate in philosophy at the

University of Kansas. My dissertation explores the microfoundationalist approach in economics–– (a) to what extent macroeconomic models requires microfoundations and (b) what grounds the need for microfoundations (or its absence).

I am proposing to think of microfoundations as a purely methodological question––i.e. as a method for generating empirical predictions, why would
macroeconomic models need microfoundations?
