Objectif du cours
The next step after the introduction of the main growth models is to improve the knowledge of the dynamic (introduction of a time component) dimension in the macro-economic models. It will be a way to introduce the spreading of micro-economic foundations in this class of models. After a first chapter dedicated to some reminders in maths beyond the usual tools of static optimisation, the course will cover the following topics :
-dynamic models of consumption : permanent income, intertemporel choices under certainty and uncertainty,
-dynamic models of investment : models of capital renting,Tobin’s Q ratio through the introduction of adjustments costs
-the introduction of Real Business Cycles models that are the first step to the design of micro-founded dynamic general models.
Standard static macro-economic models (IS/LM, AS/AD), Solow model and Endogeneous growth models
Lecture course : Alexis Penot
