Pré requis

This course will use the previous Microeconomic class content. No specific prerequisites are required but an open mind to the macroeconomic situation and developments is necessary. The homework will use simple statistics and economtrics.

Objectifs du cours

At the end of the course, the student should be able to :
- Build a coherent macroeconomic reasoning.
- Understand the flows inside an economy.
- Use and discuss the main macroeconomic variables and their evolution (business cycle).
- Sketch a short and long term macroeconomic equilibrium.
- Discuss the potential short and long term effects of both fiscal and monetary policies.

Contenu du cours

The first part of this course focuses on the measure of the national income (the GDP) and its evolution over time (the business cycle). Through the IS/LM model, Okun’s Law and the Philips Curve, students will be able to picture a short term equilibrium using the main macroeconomic aggregates (GDP, inflation, interest rate, unemployment). Then the next section will be dedicated to the effects of fiscal and monetary policy on the economic growth. Finally, students will expand their previous analysis to a long run time horizon using the Aggregate Demand (AD) and Aggregate Supply (AS).
