Some webpages useful for teachers of intermediate macroeconomics:

The more time I spend on the web, the more impressed I am with the value of lowest-common denominator material: so much high-end or sophisticated stuff simply breaks, in one way or another. So I have put together this library of simple visual animated economics demonstrations using the simplest possible technology: animated .gif files, which can be read by practically any browser. I have (naturally) keyed them to my own textbook, but they cover material that has to be covered in any intermediate macroeconomics course.

I hope that they will be useful for students trying to figure out just what is going on in their intermediate macroeconomics courses.
