Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2018-19

 

• CG3: Capacity to apply economic theory to represent real situations.

• CG4: Capacity for teamwork.

• CG5: Capacity for self-learning.

• CG6: Ethical commitment and social responsibility at work, respecting the

environment, being aware and understanding the importance of respect for

fundamental rights, equal opportunities for men and women, universal accessibility for

the disabled and respect for the values of a peaceful, democratic society.

• CG7: Analyse problems using critical reasoning, without prejudice and with precision

and rigor.

• CG8: Capacity for synthesis.

• CE1: Capacity to read Economic research articles in a reasoned fashion and evaluate

them critically, understand their essential contributions and weaknesses.

• CE2: Capacity to understand how the technical problems faced by authors of research

articles have been resolved in each case.

• CE3: Capacity to test theorems and propositions.

• CE5: Capacity to present important economic problems precisely and respond

adequately to solve problems by using the techniques learnt in the different courses,

using theoretical and empirical analyses or simulations if necessary.

GOAL OF THE LECTURES

The purpose of this course is to introduce the modeling of heterogeneous agents economies, to familiarize the student with some of the particular computational techniques used to solve numerically this kind of models, and to learn about research questions in macroeconomics that can be addressed within this environment.
