Welcome to the 2010 web site of the course "Monetary Economics: Macro Aspects," offered at the Master's Programme at Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen. On this site you will find a host of relevant information about the course, and the page will be regularly updated. You should therefore visit this site at least twice a week to stay up to date (so, bookmark it right away).

 

Limited use of Absalon

As I firmly believe in openness in education and research, I do not want to run a course with a web-site hidden for the general public. So this site, and not the Absalon site, will be the official certified web-resource for the course. The only function of Absalon in this course, will be for collecting e-mail adresses (in case I need to send you important information quickly), and running evaluations. Otherwise, in terms of contents, this is the place to be. Welcome! I hope you will enjoy the course!

 

Remember, however, to sign up for the course via Absalon in any case.
