Development of an integrated framework for analyzing the determination of macroeconomic variables such as total production, unemployment, interest rates and inflation; interpreting macroeconomic data and macroeconomic policy. A key objective of the course is to provide a link between economic theory and current economic policy. Topics for application may include recent developments in monetary policy and causes of hyperinflation and the national debt. The level of mathematical rigor is above that in a typical intermediate undergraduate macroeconomics course, but below that in a first-year PhD course. ECON 6300 may be taken as a corequisite.
As a result of completing this course, students will be able to: 1. Apply macroeconomic theory to the analysis of macroeconomic events 2. Apply macroeconomic theory to the analysis of macroeconomic policy 3. Understand basic theoretical issues on which disagreements about macroeconomic events and policy may hinge.
