    ECON 82B: Macroeconomic Theory

    Instructor: Mah Ebrahimi
    Prerequisites: ECON 20a. Students must earn a C- or higher in MATH 10a, or otherwise satisfy the calculus requirement, to enroll in this course.
    Course Description: This course will cover the principles of macroeconomic theory, the measurement of economic aggregates and the role of policy interventions. Topics covered include determinants of economic growth, business cycles, money, and the international economy. Using introductory macro models you will learn the relationships between variables such as the unemployment rate, national income, and price levels. We will also analyze how changes in decision variables, such as interest rates, taxes, and government spending, affect the economy as a whole. We will broadly explore both the short-run in order to examine business cycles and the long-run to analyze the determinants of economic growth.
