|Macroeconomics for Developing Countries, continuation course , 7,5 ECTS Credits|
|AIM OF THE COURSE|
|On completion of the course, the student should be able to
- account for how a macroeconomic model is built based on the equilibrium constraints in the goods and services, finance and labour markets
- carry out an integrated business cycle analysis of different macroeconomic events.
|Macroeconomic modelling begins with a core model for short-term macroeconomic business cycle analysis, a so called IS/LM model, which includes the goods and services markets and the financial markets. The core model is developed by adding the labour market to form a model for medium-term business cycle analysis, a so called AD/AS model. The model building is completed with a short introduction to the basic growth theory model, the so called Solow model. The theoretical model construction is continuously highlighted with historical and current macroeconomic examples.|
|The teaching takes the form of lectures and group work, where the students, in small groups, have the opportunity to practise solving and analysing certain macroeconomic issues and assignments, and to ask questions about the literature, lectures, current macroeconomic events, etc. and to develop their presentation techniques. Independent studies are a necessary complement to the teaching. The students should also study independently.|
