Here you can find some of my notes on different courses I have taught over the years. Since these are teaching notes, I borrow some material from papers, books, etc., both mine and of different people. To the best of my understanding, all that material is covered by the "fair use" doctrine or under creative commons licenses.

This set of lecture notes has been prepared for my class on computational methods.

A short course taught at the NBER SI 2011 with Larry Christiano. Link to the course web page.

This set of lecture notes is the backbone of a class on formulation, computation, and estimation of dynamic general equilibrium models. The notes have been written jointly with Juan Rubio-Ramirez at Emory University.

This set of transparencies are prepared for a graduate class in
macroeconomics. Dirk Krueger is the source of much material in them and some of the material is borrowed from standard first-year textbooks (Acemoglu, L-S, SLP, etc.).

Notes 1: Motivation and Evidence uses several graphs (pp. 32-37, 39-41, and 49-51) generously shared by Nick Bloom.

This set of transparencies are prepared for a graduate class in macroeconomics with financial frictions.

This set of lecture notes is an undergraduate class on Macroeconomics taught from an equilibrium perspective. There is more than enough material for a semester course and probably enough for a one year sequence. When I teach this class I pick and choose from those lecture notes. This is a work in progress and I will welcome any comments!

This set of lecture notes is the backbone of a course on Global Economic History at University of Pennsylvania.

I have borrowed material, tables, and figures from many researchers' work as well as received detailed comments from top economists. Among others, I owe either a direct or an indirect debt to Daron Acemoglu, Robert Allen, Mike Dotsey, Mark Koyama, Joel Mokyr, Nathan Nunn, Kevin O'Rourke, and Jim Robinson. I am working on a formal draft of these notes, where I will make all the attributions explicit.

Of course, I warmly welcome comments (and the pointing out of errors!).

This set of lecture notes is the backbone of a course on the Political Economy of Early America at University of Pennsylvania that I co-taught with Mike Dotsey.
