John Taylor Initiates a New Economics 1
This fall the Stanford Economics Department is embarking on a new Principles of Economics course. For the first time since the financial crisis, the course will be taught in one term covering both micro and macro. A one-term course will allow for a better integration of micro and macro principles. Indeed, big events like the financial crisis and the slow recovery can only be understood with a mix of micro and macro, and this makes the course more interesting for students. The new Stanford Economics 1 course will consist of about 35 lectures which provides plenty of time to cover the key topics and principles. Professor John B. Taylor will be teaching the inaugural Economics 1.
