Econ520 - Advanced Macroeconomic Theory

Spring 2021 - Prof. Lutz Hendricks


  • Survey about in person classes for the fall term
  • Debate on the minimum wage by UNC faculty members. On 4/19 at 5pm via zoom.
  • The zoom link for office hours (and for class recordings) is on sakai.
  • Feb-23: I made a list of useful sources for your term paper.
  • Feb-22: Since someone is always in quarantine these days, I plan to record future class meetings and post them on sakai. But please do not take this as an invitation to skip classes. This is still an in person class!
  • A related note: I goofed with the Feb-17 recording. Sorry about that.
  • Jan-21: I created a sakai site to post material that should not be visible to the public.
  • Jan-19: The class is full. Waitlists are centralized this year. Please contact the director of undergraduate studies, Geetha Vaidyanathan. If you want to follow class meetings while you are on the waitlist, please contact me for a zoom link.
  • In person classes begin Feb. 8
  • Important: you must have passed Intermediate Macroeconomics to register for this course.
  • Slides will be updated as the course progresses.
  • Final exam: May 14 at noon

Notes on the midterm

  • March 10, in class.
  • Material covered: through Romer model (we did not get far enough to cover the Inequality material).
  • If you miss the midterm for a valid reason (see Covid related absences), you are entitled to a make-up exam. Alternatively, we can adjust the weight of the final and term paper.
  • The exam will contain a combination of conceptual questions and model applications. See exams from previous years.
