Theories of determination of national income, employment, and the price level. Monetary and fiscal policy. Income inequality and economic instability. The course will emphasize the use of economic theory to understand current developments and policy issues in the U.S. and international economy. It will differ from a standard Econ 204 course by providing more opportunities to develop research and writing skills. The course will be especially useful for students interested in doing a senior capstone or thesis.
