ECN202 Principles of Macroeconomics
Lecture Notes
John P. Burkett
Fall 2001


My lecture notes are available at the reserve desk of the Library and as Portable Document Format (PDF) files. This page gives you access to the PDF files. To view and print these files you will need Acrobat Reader, which you can download (free) from Adobe Acrobat. Once the document is on your screen, you can try to print it. (Alas, some printers choke on complicated PDF files or can't handle ligatures or math symbols. Check your copy against one in the library or what I write on the blackboard!) I shall post new chapters to this site as soon as I finish writing them.
