ECON 506
Fundamentals of Developing Country Macroeconomics Fall 2023
Division II

Class Details

This is a practically oriented course in macroeconomic theory and policy. Macroeconomics is the study of the economy’s aggregate behavior, covering such topics as the determinants of output, employment, inflation, and the current account balance. The state of the economy affects everyone. As a result, macroeconomic issues play a central role in national and international debates. In this course, we will build a simple closed economy macro model suitable for analyzing macroeconomic policy. It will be extended to the open economy and the course will include discussions of key issues related to monetary, fiscal and exchange rate policies with a particular focus on developing and emerging economies.
