All materials in my homepage: http://www.sjsu.edu/people/yeung-nan.shieh/ . Prerequisite Courses Required: Econ. 1A and 1B. Course Description: Macroeconomics did not exist in its modern form until 1936. That was when John Maynard Keynes published his revolutionary General theory of Employment, Interest and Money . It studies the behavior of the economy as a whole, with respect to (1) business cycle; (2) inflation and deflation; (3) economic growth; (4) foreign trade (trade balance and balance of payment) and other aggregate economic variables, e.g., RGDP, unemployment rate, CPI, inflation rate, interest rate, money supply, government budget. It also studies the effects of government fiscal and monetary policy on economic activity. The purpose of this course is to examine in a logical and sufficiently systematic manner the long-run macroeconomic model and the short-run macroeconomic model, and to obtain some important principles and tools of macroeconomic theory and policy which every serious student of economics ought to know.
