The MBA Global Economy course reviews country performance from the perspective of macroeconomics. We think it’s useful background whether you’re an economist, an investor, or someone involved somehow in international activities, business or otherwise.
- Class notes. Ruhl, Schoenholtz, and Waugh updated the figures and had the text edited by a professional. Yours to use, for free, whether you’re an NYU student or not.
- Stata files. We (meaning they) have Stata files that read data straight from FRED (thanks!) and produce the figures in the notes. See the zip file at the bottom. Stata is a popular statistical software package. We’re close to having the same in R, a free open source package.
We welcome questions and comments: post a comment below or send me an email with the subject “Global Economy materials”. In time we may do the same for the Firms and Markets.
Update (Oct 6): Tyler Cowan kindly gave us a link, which generated a lot more traffic than usual. Many thanks.
