LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

Introduction to macroeconomics. 

Lehrmethodik inkl. Einsatz von eLearning-Tools

There are two parts - lectures and practice sessions. See the description in Moodle for details.

There is also a tutorial (no. 607.245) accompanying the courses. It serves the purpose of reviewing and discussing the lectures and getting some groundwork done for the exercises.

Inhalt/e

  1. A Tour of the World
  2. Output, Unemployment and Inflation
  3. The Goods Market
  4. Financial Markets I
  5. Goods and Financial Markets: The IS-LM Model
  6. Financial Markets II: The Extended IS-LM Model
  7. The Labor Market
  8. The Phillips Curve
  9. The IS-LM-PC Model

If time permits, we will study some additional chapters from the book to be decided in time, one possible choice are the following chapters:

     10. The Facts of Growth
     14. Financial Markets and Expectations

Erwartete Vorkenntnisse

Sufficient prior economics knowledge, at least to the extent of the Introduction to Economics StEOP  and Economic Policy lectures, is definitely most helpful.

Being familiar with the contents of Microeconomics VC makes it a lot easier.

And you would certainly not be the worse off when remembering the material covered in Methodology I: Mathematics and/or Methodology II: Statistics.

Literatur

O. Blanchard (2017), Macroeconomics, Global Edition, 7th ed, Pearson.
O. Blanchard (2017), Macroeconomics, 7th ed, Pearson, may be used as well, as these two books effectively coincide.


Prüfungsinformationen

Im Fall von online durchgeführten Prüfungen sind die Standards zu beachten, die die technischen Geräte der Studierenden erfüllen müssen, um an diesen Prüfungen teilnehmen zu können.

Prüfungsmethode/n

Lecutres: multiple choice online exam - 90 minutes time for 15 sections with 4 true/false statements each. Of the possible maximal 60 points you must reach at least 70% = 42 points for a positive grade on the lectures part.

Practice sessions: exercises (60% of exercises ticked, max 30 points - 15 to be positive) and a final exam (max 30 points - 15 to be positive); active participation in the discussion.

The two parts – lectures and practice sessions – each contribute 50% to the total grade.

Please note that both the successful completion of the practice sessions and the positive result from the multiple choice exam related to the lectures are necessary in order to complete the Macroeconomics VC successfully. If only one of the two parts is not completed successfully Macroeconomics VC needs to be repeated altogether.

See description in Moodle for details, especiall regarding the practice sessions.

Prüfungsinhalt/e

The exam is based on the actual contents discussed in the lectures, the list in the description is, therefore, purely indicative.

The contents discussed may go beyond the material contained in the book indicated, additional material may be provided and may possibly deviate from the book.

There is, of course, also the possibility that not all chapters indicated will be discussed and would, therefore, not be relevant for the exam.

Also, of course, more chapters than indicated at the outset may be discussed and will in
this case be relevant for the exam.
