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. The course will be more interesting if students participate actively in class
