This course aims to help you understand recent developments in Macroeconomics using graphic analysis and simple algebra. We will study the stylised facts of business cycle fluctuations, economic growth and unemployment; discuss what light modern macroeconomics can shed on these facts; and finally evaluate the scope for policy to improve macroeconomic performance.
The course will cover: the determinants of long-run economic growth, inflation and unemployment; economic pathologies such as persistent unemployment and high inflation; the cyclical behaviour of the economy; the influence of monetary and fiscal policy; the benefits and perils of financial intermediation; and the credit crunch.

N. Gregory Mankiw, Macroeconomics, Worth Publishers, Seventh Edition (International Edition) (2009).
