課程描述

本課程將著重於企業之政策與經濟環境,特別強調如國民生產毛額、通貨膨脹、利率、匯率與國際貿易等經濟變數。課程分為五個部份:首先呈現出美國中藉由強調歷史事件的總體經濟管理基本工具。再者,檢視國家發展的經濟策略。第三部份集中在新興產業中近期財務與貨幣危機。第四部份則檢視經濟轉變下所面臨的問題。最後單元則是對已開發國家做出進一步的透視。

大多數資料根據個案而來。然而,有些課程我們將仰賴兩本優秀書籍的閱讀

  • King, Philip G.著,《國際經濟學與國際經濟:讀本》(International Economics and International Economic Policy: A Reader)第三版,McGraw-Hill/Irwin, 1999. ISBN: 0-07-236069-0.
  • Eichengreen, Barry.著,《邁向嶄新的國際財務結構:後亞洲實務計畫》(Toward a New International Financial Architecture: A Practical Post-Asia Agenda). Institute for International Economics, 1999. ISBN: 0-88132-270-9.

再者,教授亦準備了選讀/課外閱讀清單:皆著重於分析資料且通常超過課程中所探討的內容。資料如下:

  • Blanchard, Olivier. 著,《總體經濟學》(Macroeconomics)第三版, Prentice Hall, 2002. ISBN: 0-13-067100-2.
  • Dornbusch, Rudiger, Stanley Fisher, 與 Richard Startz.合著,《總體經濟學》(Macroeconomics)第七版,McGraw-Hill/Irwin, 1997. ISBN: 0-07-017985-9.
  • Krugman, Paul R., 與 Maurice Obstfeld. 合著,《國際經濟學:理論與政策》(International Economics: Theory and Policy),第六版。 Addison-Wesley Longman, 2002. ISBN: 0-201-77037-7.
  • Mankiw, N. Gregory.著,《總體經濟學》(Macroeconomics),第四版,Worth Publishers, 1999. ISBN: 1-57259-644-9.

所有課程的研習問題皆可取得,因此學生們得以準備討論的內容。每位學生的課堂參與都極為重要,否則課程將無法順利完成。希望每位學生能準備所有個案討論。


主要作業

學生將有三份作業、一份題中考題與期末專題。第四份作業涵蓋了即將討論的最重要模型。作業可以三至四人小組形式完成。期中考題基本上為模型的應用,涵蓋在課堂與不對外公開的考題中。

Description

This course will focus on the policy and economic environment of firms with particular emphasis on economic variables such as GNP, inflation, interest rates, exchange rates and international trade. The course is divided in five parts: The first presents the basic tools of macroeconomic management by focusing on historical episodes, particularly in the United States. The second looks at national economic strategies for development. The third section concentrates on the recent financial and currency crises in emerging markets. The fourth part looks at the problems faced by transition economies. Finally, the last module looks at challenges of developed countries.

Most of the material is based on cases. For some classes, however, we will rely on readings from two excellent books:

  • King, Philip G. International Economics and International Economic Policy: A Reader. 3rd ed. McGraw-Hill/Irwin, 1999. ISBN: 0-07-236069-0.
  • Eichengreen, Barry. Toward a New International Financial Architecture: A Practical Post-Asia Agenda. Institute for International Economics, 1999. ISBN: 0-88132-270-9.

Moreover, the professor has also prepared a list of optional / additional readings: These focus on the analytical material and often go beyond what we will cover in class. They are based on:

  • Blanchard, Olivier. Macroeconomics. 3rd ed. Prentice Hall, 2002. ISBN: 0-13-067100-2.
  • Dornbusch, Rudiger, Stanley Fisher, and Richard Startz. Macroeconomics. 7th ed. McGraw-Hill/Irwin, 1997. ISBN: 0-07-017985-9.
  • Krugman, Paul R., and Maurice Obstfeld. International Economics: Theory and Policy. 6th ed. Addison-Wesley Longman, 2002. ISBN: 0-201-77037-7.
  • Mankiw, N. Gregory. Macroeconomics. 4th ed. Worth Publishers, 1999. ISBN: 1-57259-644-9.

Study questions are available for all the cases so that you can prepare for our discussions. Class participation by everybody is extremely important. Without it, this course cannot be a success. Everyone is expected to prepare all the cases.


Major Assignments

Students will have three problem sets, one midterm exam and a final project. The four problem sets cover the most important models we are going to study. The problem sets can be completed in groups of three or four. The midterm is essentially applications of the models, it is in class and closed book.
