Texts and Internet resources: There are two core texts on which this course is based. The first term of the course covers Microeconomics, using the excellent book by Krugman, Wells and Gaddy. The macroeconomic section of the course uses the new book by Blanchard, Amighini and Giavazzi. It is strongly recommended that you invest in both of these books. The Krugman et al text will prove a useful reference for the macroeconomics material as well as for other courses in years 2 and 3, while the Blanchard et al text is the core text for the course in European Macroeconomics, taught in year 2. 1. Krugman, P., Wells, R., and Graddy, K. (2007) Economics (European Edition). 2. Blanchard, O., Amighini, A., and Giavazzi, F. (2010) Macroeconomics: A European Perspective . Internet resources: While this course is provided in the traditional lecture-class method we will also be utilising a web based learning resource (Moodle) to provide supplementary materials. www.ucl.ac.uk/moodle You can access this using your UCL username and password from any Internet connection. You should do so regularly to check for new lecture notes, class exercises, feedback, deadlines and to refer to all of the course handouts and various other study aids. It is essential that you quickly obtain a UCL password and username and learn to navigate Moodle. You are also encouraged to use the student resources webpage of the textbooks located respectively at: http://bcs.worthpublishers.com/krugmanwellsgraddy http://www.pearsoned.co.uk/blanchard These contain a multitude of helpful resources to further increase your knowledge and to test your understanding of the course material.
