COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course develops a basic understanding of economy-wide issues such as growth, composition, and fluctuation of overall output, the determinants of unemployment, inflation, and interest rates, and the role of the financial system in facilitating savings and investment. It teaches students the tools to understand the debates surrounding current macroeconomic issues and to evaluate various policy instruments. Techniques in measuring aggregate variables are studied and these variables are subsequently employed as inputs for macroeconomic models utilized to provide insight into economic policy issues. 3
