ECON S-1012 Macroeconomic Theory

7-week session | CRN 30345

In this course we build economic models of growth, unemployment, inflation, and trade. These models are used to analyze fiscal and monetary policies and to sort out the controversies among macroeconomists. Students learn advanced concepts which can be applied to the economic analysis of business and policy situations. In addition to the textbook, students apply data in real time to the models and concepts presented. Concepts from the course are applied to current policy debates in the United States and elsewhere.
