American Macroeconomic Policy
ECON 356
Spring 2019
Section: 01  

What can history teach us about macroeconomic policy? This course will use American macroeconomic history from 1870 to the present to explore key issues in macroeconomic policy which remain relevant today. We will both extend the theoretical frameworks presented in ECON302 and delve into the empirical literature on both historical and contemporary monetary and fiscal policy. Students will produce an original, independent research paper on a topic relating to macroeconomics. Previous completion of or concurrent enrollment in ECON385 is recommended.
