This course introduces students to the most influential and compelling theories designed by macroeconomists to explain issues related to the determination of output, unemployment and inflation. Students will acquire a logical and consistent framework for understanding the main macroeconomic facts and events, and develop the ability to employ the correct macroeconomic tool(s) to explain specific macroeconomic issues and justify policy proposals.

The aims of the course are to:
