This course in Micro and Macroeconomics is designed to provide students with a unified framework that can be used to analyze micro and macroeconomic issues such as growth, productivity, labor markets, wages, business cycles, inflation, money, interest rates, monetary policy, fiscal policy, and financial crises. The course is a mixture of macro theory and real-world applications. We will develop analytical models that stress the microeconomic underpinnings of aggregate outcomes and we will apply these models to the recent experience of the US and other countries.Prerequisite: Graduate standing or permission from instructor
