Intermediate Macroeconomics - ECN 323

This course covers the main topics of macroeconomics. We analyze the forces of the market and the determinants of the general level of output, prices, and employment. We also tackle the relationship between economic growth and business cycle fluctuations. Finally, we study the policies needed to achieve full employment and price stability. This course is in contrast with the principle of macroeconomics course, which is more general and descriptive. The latter avoids how macroeconomists think while this course will put as much emphasis on empirical macroeconomic examples, history of macroeconomic thought, and macroeconomic theory itself. Prerequisite: ECN 212.
