Primary Instructor:

This course is broadly about analyzing long-run macroeconomic phenomena with general equilibrium models. We will focus on dynamic general equilibrium growth models with no uncertainty. Particular attention will be paid to the correspondence between the models and the commonly used macroeconomic data. We will consider applications related to cross-country income differences, pricing of capital assets and some fiscal policy issues. The basic dynamic macroeconomic model will be further extended to illustrate various methods of incorporating technological change as a source of growth.
