Lecture notes

You can find below links to lectures notes and slides to the classes I teach and have taught at the University of Chicago and at the Toulouse School of Economics.

These Trade notes are designed for advanced PhD students. I cover various topics of international trade, from more basic models to more advanced ones. Most of the focus of these notes is on trade theory, but I also address important empirical facts and quantitative methods in modern international trade.
These Macro notes are designed for undergraduate students. I cover seminal contributions in 20th Century macro, from the Overlapping Generations model of Samuelson to the frictional unemployment model of Diamond, from Lucas's rational expectations to endogenous growth theory. I have made every effort to present those important contributions using only the simplest technical tools.
