Andrew K. Rose: Global Macroeconomics (BA201b) Resources
Last updated: Oct 31, 2016
International Macro Rocks! A (very) few other teaching materials and links, are available at my teaching page.
I currently teach core “Macroeconomics in the Global Economy” BA201b (check out “Best Course”). In 1999 and 2012, I won the Cheit Award for Outstanding Teaching in the Haas MBA program (I was also a finalist in 1993, 1994, 1996, 2001, and 2008). I have inspired haiku while teaching the neoclassical growth model (and another while teaching the business cycle model), and also an in-class Bingo game.
Please help me improve the information provided here! You get an automatic bonus point for suggesting a significant improvement (pointing out "link-rot" doesn't count), or being the first to find something important that’s omitted or in error on this website (or the course syllabus/outline) .

the course into a number of different topics, and have prepared short
for each. The relevant chapters in
Mankiw are given in parentheses; short PDF
summarize the key concepts are available for each topic.
You can use these in advance of the class, in
class, or for review (I tend not to use overhead projections). Note that some of these files contain extra material
that may not be used in class. If you find an error
one and let me know,
you get an automatic bonus point.
How to Use these Summaries. What follows below are only summaries; they are intended to be complements to the textbook, not substitutes. They are sparse (so that you can add your own notes easily); they have little data (that is distributed separately); they are not comprehensive (that's what the text is for). Please use these notes appropriately!
