This course introduces students to economics: the study of decision making in the presence of scarcity (i.e., when people face trade-offs). Much of this course focuses on free markets: what they do well, what they do poorly, and how government intervention can improve upon (or damage) free-market outcomes. Throughout this course, many interesting questions will be addressed, such as: What determines the supply and demand of goods and services? Are government taxes good for economic efficiency? What determines the pattern of international trade? Are monopolies always detrimental for social welfare? And who benefits more from trade: producers or consumers? By answering these questions, and many others, students will develop a better understanding of the world around them, and become better decision makers as a result.
Macroeconomics, Fall 2020
This course presents a number of macroeconomic models that provide structure to our thinking about long-run economic growth and short-run economic fluctuations. The first section of this course analyzes the determinants of long-run growth, focusing on: capital accumulation, the optimal savings/investment decision, and technological progress. These factors are important for understanding why some countries, such as the United States and Japan, are prosperous, while others are not, and by extension, what economic policies can stimulate grown in developing economies. The second section of this course analyzes the determinants of short-run economic fluctuations, focusing on: shocks to the productive technology of an economy, and changes in the level of government expenditure.
