ECON 202: Intermediate Macroeconomic Analysis
Intermediate macroeconomic theory: analysis of fluctuations in aggregate income and growth and the balance of payments. Analysis of policies to control inflation and unemployment.
ECON 322: Strategy and Information
How do individuals and groups make decisions? This course is traditional game theory: the formal study of the choices and outcomes that emerge in multi-person strategic settings. Game theoretic concepts such as Nash equilibrium, rationalizability, backwards induction, sequential equilibrium, and common knowledge are motivated by and critiqued using applications drawn from education policy, macroeconomic policy, business strategy, terrorism risk mitigation, and good old-fashioned parlor games.
