SØK3003 presents detailed analyses of theories of employment, inflation, business cycles, economic growth, and problems related to the balance of payment. Among other things we discuss how expectations are formed, inter-temporal adaptation, and consequences of macroeconomic politics such as monetary- and income distribution politics. The main emphasis will be on the formation of macroeconomic politics in open economies with extensive foreign trade.
