The aim of this course is to provide students with knowledge of various modern macroeconomic models. We will use the Cobb-Douglas production function, Solow and Romer models to explain long-run economic growth. The AS-AD model is used to increase understanding of the factors that affect the economy in the short-term and how fiscal and monetary policy are used to stabilise the economy. The AD-AS model is modified using various theories to investigate the extent to which empirical events can be explained.
