PowerPoints for Intermediate Macroeconomics

These slide shows make extensive use of animation and algebra to present macroeconomic models. They include explanatory text and can be used by students for self-paced revision.

You have our permission to use the slide shows in your presentations or to copy them onto your own site or Virtual Learning Environment. You may modify them as much as you like. In return, we only ask that you notify us (email econ-network@bristol.ac.uk) that you are using them in your courses.

Tip: If distributing these presentations to students through a web site or VLE, save them as PowerPoint Show (or just change the .ppt suffix to .pps) so that they open in slide show mode.
