ECON 552 - Macroeconomics
This course provides an introduction to macroeconomics and standard theoretical models of how output, employment, and the price level are determined. The course also discusses the role of fiscal and monetary policies, as well as selected topics from international macroeconomics.
The course begins with a brief discussion of macroeconomic aggregates and their measurement in practice, but the main focus of the course is analytical. Standard analytical models address two broadly distinct topics: 
(1) macroeconomic performance and growth in the long run;
(2)short-run (business-cycle)fluctuations and stabilization (fiscal and monetary) policies.
