  • Econ 4020 - Intermediate Macroeconomics
    Looking beyond the analysis of economic behaviors at the individual level, such as an individual consumer's preference, a firm's decision making and an industry's market structure which are main topics intensely examined by Microeconomics, Macroeconomics is the study of aggregate economic phenomena, the economy as a whole. Therefore, it focuses on the following components: saving, consumption, investment and international factors at the aggregate level as determinants of national output and price levels closely associated with inflation and unemployment rates. It will examine how to model the relationships between those aggregate economic performances, and discuss what impacts government (fiscal and monetary) policies or external shocks have on those. This course offers the general equilibrium approach of Mainstream economics to modern macroeconomic theories, which boils down to 'the long-run growth with short-run economic fluctuations under the assumption of the classical dichotomy'.
  • Econ 4020 (Online) - Intermediate Macroeconomics
    This online course is taught entirely through web-based materials. It is not necessary for students to come to campus for each week's assignments or lectures. Exams, however, are paper-based so students have to take their exams at the UOnline Center Examination Lab. It requires more self-motivation than do traditional on-campus courses. Hence, I strongly recommend you to develop your own study schedule according to the syllabus.
  • Econ 3640 - Probability and Statistical Inference
    The objects of an economist’s interest are real world phenomena. We, however, reason about the world through abstract models. In order to blend the two, we are in need of a bridge. This is the role of probability and statistics. Probability and statistics are fundamentally two sides of the same coin, and they are the means by which we try to rationalize hypotheses with noisy data that describe actual behavior. The main objective of this course is to provide students with the foundations of statistical inference. Topics include basic probability models; random variables; discrete and continuous probability distributions; statistical estimation and testing; confidence intervals.
  • Econ 3200 - Money and Banking
    This course is designed to offer students modern approaches of money and banking and provide them with analytical tools to understand real-world financial events and monetary policies. Financial markets and financial intermediaries are crucial to a well-functioning economy since they channel funds from lenders to borrowers. Financial crises may occur when financial intermediation encounters any obstacle. From a macroeconomic perspective, the course pays more attention to how banking system works to create money and how monetary policy affects the economy. Topics of this course include an economic analysis of financial structure, the determination of interest rates, the role of central banks and money creation process, the conduct of monetary policy, and financial regulation. We will discuss how to apply relevant theories to recent financial events and policy debates.
  • Econ 2010 - Principles of Microeconomics
    Economic theory has evolved into one of the most dynamic and important fields in the social sciences. Economics 2010, Principles of Microeconomics, is a technically demanding course and the first class where undergraduates learn to use mathematical reasoning and modeling to understand social and political behavior. In this course students learn about optimal decision making by consumers and producers, market organization, international trade, public policy and environmental and business regulation. The course is a widely used prerequisite for upper division coursework. Principles of Microeconomics provides a solid foundation for further study in business, political science, economics, sociology, law and history.
  • Econ 2010 (Telecourse) - Principles of Microeconomics
    In general, Distance Education Telecourses require more self-motivation than do traditional on-campus courses. You should set aside blocks of time to devote exclusively to Distance Education Telecourse related requirements. For example, when viewing the broadcasts, ask other people not to interrupt you, tell them you are “in class.” “Make an appointment” with yourself to read and study for exams. Your success in this course is, to a great extent, dependent upon your ability to motivate yourself and regulate your learning environment.
  • Econ 2020 (Telecourse) - Principles of Macroeconomics
    Economics 2020, Principles of Macroeconomics, examines national and international economic issues related to government policy, institutional structure and economic stability. Among the topics addressed in this course are unemployment, inflation, trade surplus, trade deficit, the open market and how these factors and conditions affect economic issues on a global scale.
