Intermediate Macroeconomics

During the course, you will advance your studies in macroeconomic theory, and learn how to apply it on the analysis of current macroeconomic problems.

You will learn more about economic growth, the determination of employment, monetary and fiscal policy in a small open economy, exchange rate determination, the causes and effects of government budget deficits, and external imbalances. The focus is on European policy problems.

This course replaces Intermediate Macroeconomics with course code EC2201.
