This course has three distinct parts. First, we will review some investment finance theories to understand the determinants of asset pricing. Some emphasis will be placed on the role of macroeconomic factors in this process. Second, we will study a New Keynesian model of short-term macroeconomic dynamics and will emphasize the role of monetary policy in managing business cycle volatility. Third, we will introduce a number of empirical (time series) methods for analyzing short-term macroeconomic and financial activity.
