ECON 305: PRINCIPLES OF MACROECONOMICS MARK MOORE SPRING 2008 Office: KAP 324C Email: [email protected] Office Hours: M: 2:30 – 4:30 (tentative) This is an intermediate course in macroeconomics. Topics include definitions and construction of macroeconomic variables; the determination of output, unemployment, prices, and interest rates in the short and long run; the effects of monetary and fiscal policy in the short and long run; and an introduction to open economy macroeconomics. This is a textbook course, but also a topical one. Much of macroeconomics concerns the effects of policy on the economy, and there are a number of policy issues of interest at the moment. So, although reading a textbook may be a little dry, we will be able to enliven the course by discussing current policy issues. Moreover, despite the existence of a textbook, you should not be under the impression that all macroeconomic questions are settled. I will undoubtedly add supplementary material during my lectures, I may decide to add supplementary readings at various points in the course, and I may take issue with the text from time to time.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
