ECON-1003A Cooperation and Competition

To compete and cooperate are decision-based strategies that create, in some occasions, welfare and progress, and disasters in others. The history of humankind and the history of economic, political and philosophical thinking have been marked by different perceptions about the competition and cooperation among individuals. Today, these phenomena are analyzed by several sciences concerning society and human behavior, and also by natural sciences with great applicability to the problems of today´s world. Within the realm of transdisciplinarity, this course merges the questions about the work of societies and, particularly, about the decision-making processes undertaken by individuals related to market, state and community institutions.

ECON-2201 Macroeconomics II

The course in Intermediate Macroeconomics introduces the student to the formal language of modern macroeconomics and intends to provide students with basic analytical and mathematical tools used in more advanced economics courses. The core issue of the macroeconomic analysis in this course refers to the study of its microeconomic grounding and how the interaction between several agents (families, firms, government, external sector, trade unions, central bank, etc.) in various markets (assets, money, savings, labor, international, etc.) determines the aggregate behavior of economy. Macroeconomic aggregates as such meet the condition of aggregate consistency in terms of equilibrium. The course begins with a leisure-consumption static general equilibrium model and then goes into more complex dynamic models. Throughout the course, the various models are applied to study economic phenomena as inflation, unemployment, economic cycles, and the effects of tax monetary policy and international trade.

ECON-3605 Economic Development

How to explain that nowadays Venezuela has a per capita income (in purchasing power parity) lower than the PCI of 40 years ago, while in the same period Colombia has doubled it and Ireland increased it by 4? Conventional explanations resorted to macroeconomics in order to find answers. Nevertheless, answers might be found in microeconomics. This course analyzes the microeconomic mechanisms that hinder development. It goes beyond the scope of traditional answers in terms of human capital and institutions. Part of the course is focused on the analysis of asset markets and the factors and policies that hamper or encourage competition. The role of international trade, international agreements and the relation between globalization and development are also analyzed.

ECON-4212 Short-term Advanced Macroeconomics

The student may choose between ECON4212 or ECON4213. The following course is given in the first semester of each year ECON4213 and ECON4212 is given in the second semester. Most topics presented are mainly (although not exclusively) focused on economic-cycle related issues. The first part of the course deals with the unemployment theory, natural unemployment rate, dilemma between inflation and economic activities, inflation and disinflation costs, target inflation schemes, monetary rules, delegation and reputation of central banks, as well as some interesting topics of today’s economic circumstance, as deflation and liquidity tramps, monetary policy and globalization, optimal accumulation of international reserves and costs and benefits of the monetary unions and the dollarization. The second part of the course is devoted to studying the basic elements of dynamic macroeconomics. The main objective is to make students understand the numerical theory and methods to write simple computer programs (MATLAB) and use them to solve quantitative questions concerning macroeconomics, public finances, money, growth, labor market, etc., within the framework of general dynamic equilibrium. The driving theory to be followed is that of the 1985 Novel Price Winner in Economics, Robert Lucas: "One of the functions of the theoretical theory is to provide artificial economic systems that may serve as laboratories in which different policies – otherwise very difficult to assess in the real world – and be tested at lower costs " (Lucas, 1980, p. 696).

ECON-4213 Long-term Advanced Macroeconomics

This course addresses long-term macroeconomics emphasized on micro-based models of inter-temporal choice. The course intends to analyze the main available empirical evidence related to the theories discussed. The course is divided into two sections. The first section deals with the consumption theories, especially the permanent income theory and the basic theory of inter-temporal choices, the classical theory of capital accumulation and the investment theory that integrates fixed costs and intermittent investment. Besides, the class will study the labor market, creation and destruction of work and the main sources of economic friction in the market adjustment. The first section ends with the study of efficiency in the allocation of resources and the growth of added productivity and also focuses on topics as the breakdown of productivity growth, factor adjustment and market choices. The second section of the course addresses the most recent and important contributions to the economic growth theory. This section is also concerned with the neoclassical model of growth (with and without dynamic optimization), the first endogenous growth models based on constant yields of the accumulable factor, apart from endogenous growth models based on the quality increase of intermediate goods, human capital formation, and those based upon technological innovations. The last section of the course presents some recent developments in the long-term economic growth theory focused on topics as income distribution, human capital formation, demographic transition and industrial revolution.

ECON-6201 Macroeconomía Corto Plazo Doctorado

The fundamental objective of modern macroeconomics is to provide quantitative responses to economic questions. The decisions of the different agents involved in an economy (families, firms, unions, countries, governments, central banks) are derived from uncertainty conditions and affect the future. The first part of the course studies theories of unemployment, natural unemployment rate, dilemma between inflation and economic activity, inflation and deflation costs, target inflation schemes, currency rules, Central Bank delegation and reputation, and some topics of interest in the current economic situation, such as deflation and liquidity trap, currency and globalization policy, optimum accumulation of international reserves and costs, and benefits of currency and dollarization. The second part of the course is aimed at studying the basic elements of dynamic macroeconomics. The fundamental objective is to help students understand the theory and numeric methods needed to write simple computer programs (MATLAB) and use them in the solution of quantitative questions in macro, public finances, currency, growth, work market, etc., all within a general dynamic balance framework. We will follow the path established by the 1985 Economy Nobel Robert Lucas: " One of the theoretical economy functions is to provide people with artificial economic systems that may be used as labs, where the different policies - that would otherwise be very expensive to evaluate in the real world – could be tested at a very low cost " (Lucas, 1980, p. 696).

ECON-6202 The Political Economy of Development

This course approaches macroeconomics topics important to understand the long term, focusing on micro-based models of inter-temporal choices. The course presents both the basic theoretical elements and the related empirical evidence. It is divided into two sections. The first one analyzes the recent and most relevant contributions to the economic growth theory and studies the neoclassical growth model and the first endogenous growth models. The last part of the course is devoted to presenting some recent breakthroughs in the long-term economic growth theory focused on subjects as income distribution, human capital formation, demographic transition and industrial revolution.

ECON-6302 Econometrics II Doctoral Program

The course is intended to introduce the students to the cutting-edge econometric techniques for microeconomic and macroeconomic data management. The first section of the course focuses on the study of econometric methods for micro data, and refers to its application to the areas of labor economics, industrial organization, household and health economics, and economic development. The second section of the course deals with the econometric methods for time series used in microeconomic applied research and raises the kind of questions that macroeconomics may help to respond, as well as the appropriate techniques, specific problems of this type of data and the solutions proposed to solve these problems.
