This course applies economic theory and quantitative techniques to solving business decision problems. The principal economic framework is that of microeconomics and covers such topics as demand, production, cost and market structures. Regression and linear programming are the main quantitative tools developed in the course. Computer applications are a required part of the course.
This course develops models of short-to-medium-run fluctuations in overall economic activity as well as long-run models of economic growth of a nation. The former category of models includes the Keynesian, New Classical, and New Keynesian frameworks. Particular emphasis will be placed on the New Keynesian model. Empirical testing of the models using computer software will involve the statistical analysis of macroeconomic data. The primary econometric tools for analyzing this data will be regression and its extensions and modern time series analysis. Long-run models of economic growth including the Solow model and the Romer model will also be examined.
