Last week, I finished a ten lecture series in macroeconomics for graduate students at the University of Warwick. You can access these lectures by registering here.
The first nine lectures are quite technical, but the last one is accessible to a general audience and I have posted it in two parts on YouTube. Here is how I described the lecture in the YouTube header.
Join Professor Roger Farmer in this first part of a two part lecture in which he takes you on a journey through the evolution of his ideas. In Part 1 Professor Farmer explains what's wrong with New Keynesian economics and why it cannot explain the facts. In Part 2, he provides an alternative paradigm -- Keynesian Search Theory -- that can explain these facts and that offers a rich research agenda for graduate students to build upon. This second part of the lecture is also available on YouTube.
These two parts represent the concluding lecture in a ten part series delivered to advanced graduate students at the University of Warwick in the Autumn of 2020. The other lectures are available on Professor Farmer's website at rogerfarmer.com. You can follow him on twitter @farmerf
Roger E. A. Farmer is a Professor of Economics at the University of Warwick and a Distinguished Emeritus Professor at the University of California Los Angeles. Part 1 is linked here and part 2 is here.
I’m excited to share these lectures with economists, non-economists and graduate students from around the world. If you are a graduate student, there is a rich source of possible thesis topics here. If you are a practicing economist in academia, the private sector or in government, there is something here to make you think. If you learn something, please cite my work.
