Macroeconomics (undergraduate)

This class is designed for undergraduate students. I cover seminal contributions of the 20th Century in macro, from Samuelson's Overlapping Generations model to Diamond and Dybvig's bank runs model, 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.
