Fall 2022 - Prof. Lutz Hendricks


  • Nov-3: Remember that the term paper is due Nov-15 (by midnight, if you wish to work that late).

    • One change of plans relative to the syllabus: there will be no feedback from other teams (it seem logistically too complicated to me).
  • Oct-25: Economics Department Recruiting Fair on Nov-11, 10-12:30, Gardner Hall.

  • Oct-19: Fixed the open economy IS/LM slides to make exchange rate notation consistent.

  • Invitation to participate in panels on job opportunities for econ majors (Mon, Oct 17, 8:30pm)
  • Syllabus
  • Final exam:
    • Dec-6, noon. You will have 3 hours, but I expect that you will need less time than that.
    • Material covered: Everything, starting with open economy.
  • Midterm exam:

    • Oct-6 (in class).
    • Material covered: up to (NOT including) trade deficits.
  • Important: you must have passed Intermediate Macroeconomics to register for this course.

  • Important: students who do not attend the first week of classes will be dropped from the course. This is department policy. Please contact me if you need an accomodation.
