**Course ObjectiveThis is the second module of a three-module sequence on Macroeconomics. This course introduces students to formal modelling of the macroeconomy in terms of analytical tools. It discusses various alternative theories of output and employment determination in a closed economy in the short run as well as medium run, and the role of policy in this context. It also introduces students to various micro-founded theories of macro behaviour, e.g., consumption and investment behaviour of households and the demand for money generated in the household sector.**

**Course Learning OutcomesThis course enables students to analyse the macroeconomic performance of various countries using formal analytical tools. It also allows them to evaluate important macroeconomic policies and their implications.**

**Unit 1The labour market Wage determination; wages, prices and employment; natural rate of unemployment; from employment to output**

**Unit 2Aggregate demand and aggregate supply curves Derivation of aggregate demand and aggregate and supply curves; interaction of aggregate demand and supply to determine equilibrium output, price level and employment**

**Unit 3Inflation, unemployment and expectations Phillips curve; adaptive and rational expectations; policy ineffectiveness debate**

**Unit 4Microeconomic foundations Consumption: Keynesian consumption function; Fisher‘s theory of optimal intertemporal choice; lifecycle and permanent income hypotheses; rational expectations and random walk of consumption expenditureInvestment: determinants of business fixed investment; residential investment and inventory investmentDemand for money**
