PUBP 550 - Macroeconomics for Public Policy

Fall 1 Schmidt. Graded Pass/Fail.

This mini course, pitched between Principles and Intermediate levels, provides a bird’s-eye view of the aggregate open economy with a focus on the determination of output, employment, interest rates, exchange rates, and inflation. Much of the course will be devoted to reviewing the basic models and principles of macroeconomics as they apply to policies for short-run fluctuations in employment and prices (business cycles), but long-run growth will also be addressed.
