This course is a first introduction to Macroeconomics. We will study the economy as a whole and try to explain various phenomena that can be observed in the economy on the aggregate level. We will analyze fluctuations in economic activity over time, unemployment, inflation. We will discuss the role of government, in particular the fiscal and monetary policy. To illustrate these issues we will use standard AD-AS and IS-LM modeling frameworks.
