Our cohort will mainly focus on macroeconomics, specifically, monetary theory and central banking. Our aim will be to understand the role played by central banks in the past century by analyzing historical events(e.g. the collapse of the gold standard, the Venezuelan hyperinflation) and theories (Monetarism).

Objectives
-Answer questions like, what is money? and how does it shape the global economy?
-Develop a working understanding of R (Winter quarter)
-Prepare original research on a relevant topic (Spring)
