Economics 100B Professor Steven Wood 1/16/07 Lecture 1 ASUC Lecture Notes Online (formerly Black Lightning) is the only authorized note-taking service at UC Berkeley. Please do not share, copy or illegally distribute these notes. Our non-profit, student-run program depends on your individual subscription for its continued existence. These notes are copyrighted by the University of California and are for your personal use only. Sharing or copying these notes is illegal and could end note taking for this course ANNOUNCEMENTS: Welcome to Econ 100B. This is Macroeconomic Analysis. Because this is an intermediate class, we assume you have knowledge of the principles of economics. A list of these things will be provided in discussion. There will be an emphasis on real-world events as opposed to pure theory. We will be developing and applying several economic models. I have been teaching at Berkeley since 1993 and macroeconomics since 1998. I am also the president of a consulting company, Insight Economics. I also worked at Bank of America as a senior economist and managing director. I managed our global research activities in Asia and Europe. I was vice- president and senior economist at Chase Econometrics as well. I have a PhD in Econ from Claremont Graduate. Today’s Agenda will be going over the syllabus and a brief introduction to macroeconomics. My office hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:30-2PM and by appointment in F469 at the Haas School of Business. If you need to get a hold of me the best way is via e-mail at [email protected] . I am only reachable by phone when I am in the office. The textbook for the class will be Robert E Hall and David Papell’s Macroeconomics, 6 th edition. This book is optional. No problem sets will come from the textbook. I do recommend that you get some form of a macroeconomics textbook for reference. For note taking in this class I recommend a set of colored pens or pencils. These colored pens and pencils will be required for exams. This class is full including the waitlist. All additions to this class are done via Bearfacts. Neither I nor the GSI can add people to this class. Please contact Jeff Butler at [email protected] or in 508-2 Evans Hall. There is also an equivalent class offered in the Haas School of Business on Mondays and Wednesdays. We will not take attendance in class. The first week of section attendance will be taken. If you are not there and do not have a pre-excused absence, you will be dropped . GSIs will establish their own policies about attendance for their sections. Economics Tutoring – The Economic Answer Center provides tutoring for Econ 100B students at no cost. Private tutors are available. One of the volunteers was a former GSI for this class.
