Purpose

Fiscal and monetary (EU) policy and institutions (Part II, October)
Ramon Marimon

This advanced full-credit course (or two half-credit) is (are) open to everyone, from 2nd year graduates on, but Part I is specially designed for 2nders. The course is selfcontained, although familiarity with recursive methods is recommended. Part I can be seen as a macro transition course, between the first-year macro sequence and other advanced macro courses – such as, Part II. Therefore, a student can register to the full-credit course or to one of the half-credit parts. For students taking the course for credit, Part I will have a short exam (during the Block I exam period) and for Part II requires to critically summarize the ‘state-of-the-art of…’ by deconstructing one article, or two and, possibly, make reference to others (more details will follow). For both parts, I will also count class participation [10%].
