This subject equips students with the conceptual tools to more thoroughly understand and interpret monetary phenomena in the macroeconomy. It develops the treatment of macro models in intermediate macroeconomics using key frameworks from intermediate microeconomics and uses this treatment to examine various explanations of interest rate determination, the interaction between money, inflation and output, and the functions and regulation of financial intermediaries. This provides a detailed framework for carefully investigating the principles and operation of monetary policy and enables students to develop the skills to evaluate recent challenges and developments in monetary policy implementation.
