DESCRIPTION: This course will provide an overview of macroeconomic issues: the determination of output, employment, unemployment, interest rates, and inflation. Monetary and fiscal policies are discussed, as well as international economic issues. The course will introduce basic models of macroeconomics and illustrate principles with the experience of US and other economies. The learning experience is not intended to be simply that of acquiring a body of knowledge, but rather developing a way of thinking. Homework exercises will focus almost exclusively on analytical problem solving, applying the theoretical models developed in lectures to understand real-world phenomena. READINGS:

2 The text for the course is “ O.G. Blanchard, Macroeconomics 7th edition , Prentice Hall, Pearson 2017”(available in Barnes and Nobles, you can also get a previous version). For additional exercises and resources about the book you can also visit the books web site at . There are many macroeconomics textbooks in the market but I really like Blanchard’s book more than the others. My previous students were pleased to have Blanchard as the textbook; I think you will find it clear and fun to read!

    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.
