COURSE OVERVIEW This is the companion course to Principles of Microeconomics (2010). Macroeconomics is the branch of economics that analyzes the economy as a whole. It examines the economic behavior of aggregates, such as income, employment, etc., that determine national output. This course will focus on the calculation of major macroeconomic variables, the analysis of key economic models, and on government policy tools. The main goal for this course is to improve your economic literacy and to provide insight into the actions and consequences of government policy makers and economic institutions, such as Congress and the Federal Reserve.

Note: Students may not receive credit for ECON 2020 if they have received credit for ECON 1000. COURSE LEVEL & PREREQUISITES You should have completed and successfully passed Principles of Microeconomics (Econ 2010). If you have not yet done so, you must see me during the first week of classes . You should also be comfortable with high school level algebra (i.e., solve simple simultaneous equations graphically and algebraically) and geometry (i.e., finding the area of a triangle). LECTURES I do not take attendance during lecture; however, I strongly recommend you attend all lectures. The majority of lecture material will follow from the text, but the emphasis and some material may differ. Material on exams will come directly from lecture material. RECITATION Attending recitation is required. During recitation, the TAs will review material that is presented in lecture, as well as provide you with more examples and practice problems to prepare you for the exams. Your TA will describe his/her grading policy and what is expected of you during your first recitation. Recitation begins the week of January 20, 2009.
