Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory: Course Description

The original 'Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory' lecture course from MIT introduced students to the theoretical formulas that predict international and national-level economic outcomes. Professor George Marios taught the course to Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Bachelor of Science in Economics candidates. Students learned about the development and testing of generalizations about national economies, including the neoclassical and Solow growth models. These theories have important implications for the policies that governments use to achieve economic growth and improve living standards. Basic knowledge of calculus and macroeconomics will make this course more understandable for the general public.

This OpenCourseWare includes lecture notes, a reading list, problem sets, exams with solutions and research paper requirements. To get additional details about this free bachelor-level economics course, navigate to the theories of macroeconomics course page.
