Inhalt The course "Advanced Macroeconomics" focuses on modern theories of macroeconomic fluctuations. It is built explicitly on microeconomic foundations, by considering the decision making process of the microeconomic agents, namely firms and households. These microeconomic units are then aggregated to study their interactions and macroeconomic outcomes.

After a preliminary introduction to the Solow model in continuous time, which focuses mainly on long-term growth and production, we will develop a simple Ramsey model that also considers household consumption/saving decisions. To delve into business cycle dynamics and transition to short-run macroeconomics, we will then explore the so-called RBC model. In this model, we introduce stochastic elements, and agents face uncertainty about the future.
We will also scrutinize two crucial components of aggregate demand in these "real" models, namely consumption and investment. In the following lecture block, we will introduce nominal rigidities, i.e., sticky prices, into the RBC model. This extension will enable us to examine, for example, monetary policy.
Throughout the course, there will be exercise sessions designed to familiarize students with the practical applications of these models. This approach will allow them to build a foundational set of models that they can later use to explore more specific research questions. This lecture aims to equip students with an initial toolbox for modern macroeconomic analysis.
Note: for students interested largely in long-run macroeconomics: more detailed and advanced long-run models are covered in 67962 «Long-run Macroeconomics: Growth theories» (R. Stelter).
Lernziele This course provides students with the technical toolbox to study modern macroeconomic models and to conduct simple policy evaluations.
Literatur Textbook D. Romer, Advanced Macroeconomics, 5th edition. Additional literature will be announced in class (syllabus).
