This unit covers a variety of topics in macroeconomics such as monetary economics, liquidity and aggregate activity, business cycles and volatility, economic growth, income inequality, public pensions, optimal taxation and unemployment. The topics studied all share two hallmarks of modern macroeconomic theory: (i) choice over time and (ii) uncertainty. The unit relies heavily on the recursive approach and the basic methods of stochastic processes.
