講義概要  Every day, we hear and read about economic growth, inflation or deflation, unemployment, and fiscal and monetary policies. These are called macroeconomic phenomena because they are related to an economy as a whole. Although they are apparently abstract concepts, these events inexorably affect ordinary people as well as businessmen.
  Therefore, it is essential to know basic mechanisms of macroeconomics. Questions we would like to tackle are as follows. Why does an economy grow or stagnate in the short-run and in the long-run? Why do prices go up or down and how harmful is deflation? Why is unemployment rate so high and why do wages go down? What do fiscal and monetary polices do?
  This course is intended to help you to think about these questions taking into account institutional aspects such as so-called Japanese economic system.
