MACROECONOMICS MODELLING AND POLICY
In this module, we will cover selected principles and policies that characterise the macroeconomy. The course will focus on theories and applications of economic growth and income inequality, unemployment and inflation, in particular. The theories will be tested using empirical methods popular in the literature. The student will be able to address questions popular in the new empirical macroeconomic literature such as, what causes a nation s economic activity to fluctuate, what causes unemployment, what are the new empirics of global income inequality, inflation, and unemployment, and what are the spatial distributions of economic growth and unemployment across the world.
