Part 1: Methods

Problem set #1 (solutions, Ramsey_discrete) deals with basic concepts and methods relevant for the course, most of which are explained in the Macroeconomics Toolbox.

You may want to prepare for class by going through the relevant sections in the Toolbox and by solving the problem sets. 

Part 2: Economic Growth

Problem set #2 (solutions) covers the topics studied in "Advanced Macroeconomics I: Economic Growth" from the lecture.

Part 3: Economic Fluctuations

The problem set in this block (solutions, ex2, ex3) covers the models studied in "Advanced Macroeconomics II: Economic Fluctuations" from the lecture.
