Course structure 1/5/2012 3 My lecture notes serve for later study, as much as for  in-class lecture notes Contain lots of info; don’t try to just write what’s on  the screen Lecture is being recorded – if you miss something I  said, mark “*” or “?” in your notes and listen again  I don’t recommend printing small slides with a few  lines and taking notes there – too small, too little  space to write. When opening the computer file, most slides have  “notes” of clarification that may be handy (and worth  printing?)

My goal for the class: to give you a language to speak  about what’s going on in the current economy, and a  framework in which to think about it Discuss the recent recession/crisis as we go along  acknowledge that we’re never quite sure what is  going on as we speak (nor is hindsight 20/20) acknowledge that our explanation for what’s going  on will likely change in the near/far future The principles are here to understand WHY policies  are being proposed (infrastructure stimulus, tax  cuts, cuts to teacher salaries), and their pros and  cons. 1/5/2012
