Advanced Macroeconomics

Beginning in Spring 2020, we will now have a four semester macro sequence. Students will still take their comprehensive exam after the first two semesters, but those writing in macro will be expected to take all four semesters of macro as well as Econ 619 (Monetary Theory). These courses will be "team taught" both to allow the professors to teach according to their comparative advantage and so that grad students are able to get to know all of the faculty. Below is an outline of the topics in each course. The asterisks denote topics that I will teach. The links are to my own typewritten notes.
