Course Description

This course will focus on the construction of models for understanding the international business cycle and analysis of macroeconomic policy in open economies.

The second part will cover the recent literature on macroeconomic policy in open economies. The third portion of the course will return to model building and shock transmission and focus on the recent literature at the intersection between international trade and macroeconomic theory.
