For a long time shifts in agents expectations have been believed to have impor- tant implications upon aggregate fluctuations, but have received relatively little attention among macroeconomists. Not only have the dot-com boom and the Great Recession led to a revival of this idea, they have placed it firmly at the centre of a new wave of research about the impact of expectations and news. This thesis contributes to a better understanding of the role of news for busi- ness cycle fluctuations. Particular attention is paid to news and anticipation effects in conjunction with learning and the role of financial intermediation.
