Econ 200: Intermediate Macroeconomics

Undergraduate, Vassar College, 2024

Course Description

A more formal introduction to macroeconomic theory. The course focuses on the determinants of growth, both in the long-run and short-run. We will emphasize how economists think about modeling the macroeconomy, as well as explore: 1) the factors of production, 2) business cycles, 3) monetary policy, 4) fiscal policy, 5) the financial system, and 6) labor markets. Students will be exposed to some basic data analysis using spreadsheet software, a soft introduction to using software to solve economic models, as well as construct economic models by hand. Near the end of the course, students will apply these skills to various historical economic episodes by modeling various financial crises using the models learned in the class.
