“Macroeconomics II,” Bern, Fall 2017

MA course at the University of Bern.

Time: Wed 10-12. KSL course site. Course assistant: Christian Myohl.

The course introduces Master students to modern macroeconomic theory. Building on the analysis of the consumption-saving trade off and on concepts from general equilibrium theory, the course covers workhorse general equilibrium models of modern macroeconomics, including the representative agent framework, the overlapping generations model, and possibly the Lucas tree model. Lectures follow chapters 1–4 (possibly 5) in this text.
