This course will teach students the basic tools of macroeconomics and apply them to real world economic policy. The goals of the course are for students to (a) understand how to evaluate macroeconomic conditions such as unemployment, inflation, and growth (b) understand how monetary policy and fiscal policy can be used to influence macroeconomic conditions (c) understand media accounts of macroeconomic events. The course will cover a broad range of topics in macroeconomic policy. Examples of issues to be discussed include the role of fiscal and monetary policies in stabilizing the economy, the relationship between inflation and unemployment, the role of government policy in promoting long-term economic growth, monetary and fiscal policies in an open economy, deficits and debt, and European Monetary Union. The course will be structured around the tools (models) of macroeconomics, using primarily graphs, and occasionally equations. However, motivation for these tools, and examples of their use will always be taken from current and recent real-world macroeconomics events and conditions. This course is limited to 35 students, and Ford School students will be given first preference. Prerequisite: PUBPOL555 or Economics 401 (Intermediate Microeconomics), or the equivalent.
