This course is a one-(summer) session course covering macroeconomic facts, theory, and policy.  It covers the determinants of economic growth, business cycles, inflation, and unemployment along with a discussion of the international economy.

The learning goals of this course are for students to leave with an understanding of:

  • how the availability of capital and labor affect a country’s standard of living;
  • how technological progress results in economic growth and higher living standards;
  • the relationship between the domestic economy and the international economic environment, as reflected in the behavior of the balance of payments; and
  • how fiscal and monetary policies affect unemployment and inflation in the short run.

In general, you will learn how to use rigorous, mathematical models to appraise critically the issues underlying important contemporary policy debates in the United States and elsewhere.

Contact if you have further questions about the course material and expectations.

Summer Activities

Brandeis Summer School hosts a number of summer activities to be sure the students in our community have a chance to enjoy their study breaks.

This year, you’ll see regular lemonade and cookie events to provide a sweet treat, as well as trips to local shopping plazas for essentials. We’re also offering some more adventurous activities – like a Whale Watching trip in Gloucester. We’ll be taking students to the Museum of Fine Arts, as well as down to Newport, RI for a day at the beach and out on a sunset cruise in Boston Harbor. We hope you’ll join us for some of these activities!
