    Course Introduction

    Macroeconomics is the study of the overall performance of an economy. It addresses issues such as long-run economic growth, short-run economic fluctuations, inflation, un­em­ploy­ment, and the effects of monetary and fiscal policy. This course will present macro­eco­no­mic models and discuss their implications for contemporary macroeconomic issues. In particular, we will develop simple mathematical models and use them to explain macro­eco­nomic phenomena.

    At the end of this course, we should have a solid understanding of macroeconomic theory and methods. We should be able to have a broad understanding of the unique perspective taken by macroeconomists in their study of society and human behavior. Also, we should be able to understand the macroeconomic methodology and how it is applied to real world problems.
