Course objectives
In this course the students will be introduced to the modern macroeconomics - the New Classical Macroeconomics. They will learn how to build simple macro-models derived from microeconomic principles based on the assumption of rational expectations and adjusting markets. At the end of this course, students will be able to understand and explain the basic causes of economic growth and fluctuations, use data about the governmental economic policy to predict its outcomes, to formulate a reasoned differential diagnosis for the current economic conditions, and be prepared to study macroeconomics on the advanced level in the consequent courses.
