College Fed Challenge Team

This can also be a 1.5 credit hour course, ECN 292 in the fall, or a 1.5 credit hour course, ECN 291 in the spring.  Students can take either course or both of them (in any order).  Both the courses will involve learning about monetary policy together with preparing students to compete in the annual College Fed Challenge competition. The courses involve a mix of lectures by the instructor with student led discussions of the state of macroeconomy, 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 class is taken pass/fail only with the permission of the instructor and there is an “info session” held on the first day of class every semester.
