The course teaches how to use the tools of economic theory in the analysis of problems related to economic policy issues.
The course studies some of the models that are at the core of recent macro literature. Starting from Ramsey we study OLG models and then move to models of the business cycle. In the second part of the course we study new-keynesian models and finally discuss how one can build the microfoundations of some "famous" macro models the students may have seen in previous courses.
Grades is based on by-weekly problem sets, a partial exam and a final written exam.
