Module overview

The main objective of this module is to provide analytical understanding of how economic policy affects macroeconomic outcomes. The main macroeconomic outcome that we will look at is output (what we usually measure as GDP). We will approach the study of the evolution of output from two very different time horizons. First, we will look at the long-run trend of output, that is, we will study why economies grow and which policies might help promote growth. Secondly, we will look at the short-run fluctuations of output. We will try to understand the patterns behind economic booms and busts and we will study which are the effects of different fiscal and monetary policies.
