Teaching Macroeconomics after the Crisis: A Survey among Undergraduate Instructors in Europe and the U.S

Manfred Gärtner (), Björn Griesbach and Florian Jung

No 1120, Economics Working Paper Series from University of St. Gallen, School of Economics and Political Science

Abstract: An online survey among undergraduate macroeconomics instructors reveals that roughly half of them were scared when the crisis erupted and remain wary that more may be in the offing. As regards teaching, courses feature much the same lineups of models as they did before the crisis. A striking change concerns public debt dynamics, which receives much more emphasis. Regarding the finer fabric of undergraduate macro teaching, exciting things are going on. A host of topics related to financial markets has entered the curriculum, and there is more interest in economic history, the history of economic thought and case studies.
