 Introduction to the main topics of interest in macroeconomics, such as economic growth, business cycles, and labour market frictions.
 Developing a theoretical foundation and familiarity with rigorous analytical models in order to prepare the students for more advanced treatments of macroeconomic questions.
 Learning the basic concepts in macroeconomics, such as gross domestic product, national income accounting, inflation and price indices, labour market metrics, and business cycle terminology.
 Understanding, constructing, and using macroeconomic models tailored towards particular questions in order to assess how government policies or macroeconomic events affect the agents in the economy, such as consumers and firms, in a general equilibrium setting.
 Learning how and why to use microfoundations (agent based modeling with rational expectations) to arrive at consistent aggregate economic implications, in line with the Lucas Critique.
 Understanding the difference between general equilibrium and partial equilibrium analyses; and thus the difference between micro and macroeconomic approaches to economic questions.

 Understand the notion of causality, and its importance in empirical research.
 Identify five strategies that can be used to answer causal questions using data: random assignment, regressions, instrumental variables, differenceindifferences, and regression discontinuity design, and their associated regression specification.
 Clearly articulate each method’s requirements, typical use, and limitations, and know how to interpret their quantitative results.

 Students learn how one can apply economic concepts learned in the core sequence to real world problems in international development policy, and the general ideas in the field.
 Students learn how the discipline carries out empirical research, how to employ data to better understand aspects of economic behaviour applicable to development. Specifically, students learn applications of the research methods used in the field.
 Students gain practical experience in development economics research. They complete a group research project, with scaffold assignments on it: (i) a research project review and planned research to address a selected question; (ii) a class presentation; and (iii) a group research paper.

 Represent situations with incomplete information with knowledge and belief type spaces. Use analytical tools (knowledge operators, Bayesian updating) to discuss information that players have about the world and about each other.
 Represent strategic situations as normal or extensive form games. Demonstrate competence and understaning of basic game theoretic solution concepts like Bayesian Nash equilibrium, and Perfect Bayesian equilibrium.
 Distinguish between different types of models with incomplete information (adverse selection, signalling, moral hazard, reputation). Discuss ways how incomplete information can affect strategic analysis.
 Use analytical tools to build a gametheoretic model of a real world situation with incomplete information. Be able to distinguish between important and irrelevant elements of the real world description and focus on the former when building the model.
