ANNOUNCEMENTS This course is intermediate macroeconomics with an emphasis on real world applications. I hope everyone here has taken Economics 1 or 2 because we will be using what you have learned in those courses and expanding on it. We will be developing a set of models to explain the behavior of important macroeconomics variables. Economics is the explanation of certain aspects of the world. Once we develop these models, we apply them to current and historical macroeconomic developments. All of these models are valid for economies that have markets. To help your GSIs, I am asking you to write your GSI a brief letter of introduction for your next discussion section. Please include 1) your name and picture 2) your year 3) your major 4) why you are taking this course. Your textbook is Macroeconomics, 6 th edition, Addison-Wesley 2008, by Andrew Abel, Ben Bernanke, and Dean Croushore. A 5 th edition should work out just fine but the page numbers from the syllabus will all refer to the 6 th edition. I will NOT use the 4 th edition because I have never seen or used it. Some of you have asked me about the 6 th international edition. I have never seen it, but I believe it should be similar. My office hours are Tuesday and Thursday 2:15 to 3:15 PM, 520 Evans Hall. I am only on campus Tuesday and Thursday so I can only meet with you on those days. I can do by appointment before class or stay after class. You can also contact me through email. For class supplies, you will need a set of colored pens or pencils. Make sure you have a set of four colors. We will use multiple colors and they will be REQUIRED for both problem sets and exams. Attendance will be taken and is required in discussion section this week and only this week. You need to be there to see your GSI and make sure that attendance is certified. If you are absent from discussion this week you will be dropped. In terms of adding this class, I cannot add you to this class. There is nothing I can do. Enrollment is handled automatically by TeleBears. The higher you are on the waitlist, the better your chances are but it is still processed automatically. If you are 97 th on the waitlist, don’t ask me your probability of getting in the class. “Instructor Approval” requests are handled by the Economics Head GSI Juan Carlos Suarez. You can contact him at headgsi@econ.berkeley.edu or visit him in 508-2 Evans. E-mail Juan Carlos if you have enrollment issues or want to move around from one discussion
