Applied Macroeconomics

This course provides an introduction to macroeconomics at the graduate level. The course is concerned with economic theories of the overall level and dynamic of economic activity in countries and regions. These theories are explored by examining the following applied key macroeconomic questions: why are some nations poor while others are rich? What determines the pace of economic growth? How much richer is the typical American today than the typical American 100 years ago? What causes macroeconomic instability? What policies might governments pursue to spur growth? How do we square economic growth with our efforts to limit climate change and provide for future generations?
