ECON-7103 (3 credits): Macroeconomics

This course develops the basic tools that are used in the analysis of macroeconomic problems. We first discuss the usefulness of general equilibrium models and their structure, using these models to address questions regarding unemployment, innovation, income inequality and structural change. Models with heterogeneous agents are then discussed, as will modern quantitative techniques for solving them. We then evaluate various policy reforms with a numerically-solved heterogeneous agent model.
