In this course we will introduce students to computational macroeconomic modeling. The objective is to enhance students' understanding of macroeconomics and improve their skills in applying its analytical tools in a policy context. We will begin with simple income-expenditure macro models and work up to more complex ones such as inter-temporal open-economy models. Some of the economic issues we will analyze include: the effect of international aid on growth and development in developing countries; output-inflation trade-offs; fiscal policy dynamics in an open economy; determination of the real equilibrium exchange rate; and, economic growth processes. While the emphasis will be on simulation some parameter estimation will be done. (ECON 0155 and ECON 0210 and ECON 0250, or by waiver.) 3 hrs. sem.
