Description for 2024/25

This module is designed to provide students with an understanding of advanced macroeconomic theories, analytical approaches and empirical evidence and their implications for macroeconomic policy. These ideas will be developed in the context of key macroeconomic policy problems such as the business cycles and effectiveness of stabilization policy, the time inconsistency problem and its implications for monetary policy in its quest for low inflation, unemployment and the appropriate labour market institutional features, the effectiveness of fiscal policy and the constraints faced when sound public finances are to be maintained, and the questions related to and the main theoretical approaches to long-term growth of output and living standards.

The module will analyse the significance of macroeconomic dynamics and their implications for macroeconomic modelling and policy formulation.
