Advanced Macroeconomics 2

Winter / January 2021

Taught By: Amit Roy and Willi Semmler

Section: A

CRN: 5179

Credits: 3

The course will cover topics on macroeconomics that connect to Grad Macro but will bring the students to the forefront of the current research. We will cover topics such as: 1) Long swings in economic growth, business cycles, and financial cycles 2) Non-Renewable resources and resource boom-bust cycles 3) Macroeconomics of climate change, climate disasters, and climate policies 4) Wage, income and wealth inequalities: Theory and empirical evidence 5) Globalization, the labor market, and the Phillips-Curve: Recent work 6) Financial market, financial intermediaries, and financial instability: Recent work 7) Conventional and unconventional monetary policies: Recent work 8) Fiscal Policy, the multiplier and evolution of sovereign debt: Recent work 9) Labor market, new technology, employment, and wage disparities 10) Pandemic-driven global meltdown and policies This course is accepted as a three-credit course relevant for MA, MS, and Ph.D. students (for Ph.D. students as preparation for the QE in Macro). For MA students some knowledge of macroeconomics such as Grad Macro is needed. More advanced students will also be introduced to Keynesian macroeconomic dynamics, regime-switching modeling, and some multi-regime econometrics. There will also be lab sessions. Students are also welcome to register for auditing the course. With some additional work, the course can also be taken for seminar credit. If you are interested in such an intensive January class and if you would like to have other topics covered, please write us a note. The course will be given online, but there will also be lab sessions accompanying it. Only a research paper is required for the course (that can be turned in later).
