Topic 1 Introduction

These are a set of detailed course notes for ECON 4750 at UGA. They largely come from my personal notes that I have used to teach this course in previous years, which, in turn, are largely based on the Stock and Watson textbook serves as the other main reference for the course.

These notes have improved drastically over the course of several years. However, they are a work in progress and have not been professionally edited or anything like that…so it is possible that there are some mistakes (if you find any, please let me know). That said, I hope you will find this to be a useful resource this semester.
