Introduction to Macroeconomics

Subject Course No. Credit Value
Economics ECON 1023 Three (3) credit hours

Economics divides itself into two halves: micro and macro. Macroeconomics is the study of larger chunks of reality than microeconomics, aggregates such as a country’s gross national product, its rate of inflation, and its unemployment rate. The standard (‘neoclassical’) model is constructed to explain interest rates and exchange rates, and helps us understand how the government can stabilize the economy, and the limitations of government policy, in an increasingly globalized world.
