Module Title : Macroeconomic Analysis III
Module Description : This module is divided into two sections; long- and short- run macro-economic analysis. In the first section, we shall discuss various theories of economic growth using inter-temporal optimization models, which include neo-classical growth models and overlapping-generations models. In the second section, we shall add stochastic elements to the standard neo-classical growth model and use it to study business cycles. Our focus will be to highlight the similarities and differences between the Real Business Cycle and New-Keynesian Models. This course is suitable for students intending to pursue graduate studies or quantitative research (in ministries, statutory boards, etc.) in Economics.
