This page focuses on the course 14.05 Intermediate Macroeconomics as it was taught by Prof. George-Marios Angeletos in Spring 2013.
This course uses the tools of macroeconomics to study various macroeconomic policy problems in-depth. The problems range from economic growth in the long run, to government finances in the intermediate run, to economic stability in the short run. Many economic models used today are surveyed.
The primary goal of this course is to help students develop a consistent way of thinking about some key macroeconomic phenomena. Learn more about the objective of the course.
