Course Description

Macroeconomics looks at the big-picture performance of the national economy and its links to the global economy. Designed to examine many of the basic tools economists use, this course covers economic perspective, fundamental concepts, graphing skills, and an overview of the interrelated components of the United States economy.

Course resources explain the importance of supply and demand, economic measures, growth, employment and inflation, and how these relate to the business cycle and the health of the economy. Students will develop knowledge of aggregate expenditures and aggregate supply and demand, with a specific macroeconomic point of reference.

In addition to issues affecting United States markets, the course examines various international issues important in today's global economy.

I loved that the course had real-life questions. With the textbook it made it easy to study and apply the methods to real-life problems. With alot of the questions since they could get a bit boring I would replace them with things I really liked ie fashion etc. This helped me to learn and apply the methods.
