Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory

In summer session 2017 I taught an undergraduate course in macroeconomics. Course topics ranged from long run classical views of growth, to short run stabilization policy.  Special focus was placed on testing theories against data, and understanding the policy implications  from different macroeconomic models, and how those change when underlying assumptions are altered. Evaluations are on a scale from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest). 

Overall educational value: 4.3
