Economics 103 Section 2 Principles of Macroeconomics Summer 2007 MTWRF 9:40 – 11:10 am BEH 111 Instructor Bernard Malamud Email: bernard.malamud@unlv.edu Office: BEH 502 Phone: 895 –3294 FAX: 895 - 1354 Office Hours: By appointment (generally 11:30 am – 12:30 pm) General Nature of the Course Course objectives: An introduction to the study of the determination of the level of national income, employment and prices and the basic causes of fluctuations in these levels .
