Leerdoelen Upon completion of this course the student should be able to:
1. define and explain basic macroeconomic concepts.
2. link different macroeconomic concepts in the context of the simple static and dynamic models.
3. analyze macroeconomic models algebraically and graphically.
4. derive predictions about the impact that particular shocks and policy changes are going to have on aggregate economic activity.
5. distinguish between the effects of shocks and policy changes in the short-run, the medium-run and the long-run.
Omschrijving This course provides a general introduction to the field of macroeconomics, which analyzes economic activity from an aggregate perspective. It will explain key macroeconomic concepts such as national income, inflation and unemployment, as well as how they are related to each other. Building on these relationships, students will learn to work with a core set of simple macroeconomic models that they can use to analyze a broad range of macroeconomic issues. These models will provide a framework to think about aggregate economic activity in both the short run and in the long-run and about how it can be affected by economic policy decisions.
