Recursive Models of Dynamic Linear Economies
by Lars Hansen, Thomas J. Sargent
Number of pages: 530
This book views many apparently disparate dynamic economic models as examples of a single class of models that can be adapted and specialized to study diverse economic phenomena. The class of models was created by using recent advances in (i) the theory of recursive dynamic competitive economies; (ii) methods for estimating and interpreting vector autoregression; (iii) linear optimal control theory; and (iv) computer languages for rapidly manipulating linear optimal control systems.

The authors develop a theoretical framework for the analysis of the determinants of international capital movements, trade imbalances, and nominal and real exchange rates. The framework is then used as the basis for the discussion of policy issues.

Business cycles are both important and, despite a large amount of economic research, still incompletely understood. In these notes the author will describe how to use standard neoclassical theory to explain business cycle fluctuations.

These lecture notes cover a one-semester course. The overriding goal of the course is to begin provide methodological tools for advanced research in macroeconomics. The emphasis is on theory, although data guides the theoretical explorations.

Macroeconomics describes and explains economic processes that concern aggregates. An aggregate is a multitude of economic subjects that share some common features. By contrast, microeconomics treats economic processes that concern individuals.
