College Fed Challenge Team
This can also be a 1.5 credit hour course, ECN 292, preparing students to compete in the annual College Fed Challenge competition. Students discuss the state of macroeconomics, with a particular focus on monetary policy. For the competition, which takes place in the Fall, students will give a presentation displaying their knowledge of the current state of the economy and advocating the policy actions that they think should be taken by the Federal Open Market Committee. The 1.5 hours of academic credit are awarded in the fall semester, but to qualify students must have been active members of the Fed Challenge team in the preceding Spring (a commitment of one hour per week). The class is taken pass/fail only with permission of instructor.
