Summary of Lecture This course introduces the workhorse models in modern macroeconomic theory. We start from the Solow model and then move onto the neoclassical growth models and endogenous growth models. We will also briefly overview the optimal control theory and dynamic programming and how neoclassical growth models are used in the finance literature. Lastly, some advanced papers will be discussed to help students learn how the workhorse models covered in class are used in the latest research, which addresses questions such as “Will technological progress save Earth from environmental problems?, ” “How much the women’s labor participation has contributed to economic growth?,” “What will be the impact of machines on the labor markets,?” “What is the macroeconomic-impact of microfinance?” etc. Successful completion of this course should allow students to (1) read and critique theoretical papers in macroeconomics and finance, and (2) be prepared to build an applied theoretical model of your own. The course will be self-contained, so students who have not had any prior exposure to macroeconomics should be able to complete the course successfully.
