Gregory Mankiw, Macroeconomics , seventh edition, Worth Publishers, 2010 & Aplia access.

I personally believe everybody should glance through The Economist every week. It is an excellent news source with well-written articles on a wide range of topics. Arguments are well organized and supported with evidence. (For an interesting exercise, compare it with the articles in Time or Newsweek .) Overview of the course This course examines the functioning of the aggregate economy, including the determinants of long-run growth and the nature of the business cycle. A major goal is to introduce the student to the dominant classical and Keynesian models through which macroeconomic behavior and policy can be analyzed. More specifically, we will use the framework developed in the course to analyze economic growth, productivity, full employment, and price stability in national economies. Attention will also be devoted to international economic issues, like international trade and international finance. Relevant events from the real world will be discussed. Prerequisites : Econ 101, Econ 112 or permission of instructor.
