Advanced Macroeconomics and Growth 7,5 Credits
- The course builds on knowledge presented in Intermediate Macroeconomics Theory B and has the objective to provide the student with theories and methods for analysing macroeconomic growth, including endogenous economic growth - especially related to human capital and R & D. The student should also learn how to model, analyse, and forecast the development of aggregate variables, such as consumption, investment, unemployment, and inflation by considering economic trends, economic fluctuations, and business cycles. Critical remarks on the accuracy of model-based predictions form an essential part.
- The course presents neoclassical models of economic growth and more recent models of endogenous economic growth. It also presents a model of "real business cycles", Keynesian and "New Keynesian" economic models, fixed-price models, and real "Non-Walrasian" models.
