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 think straighter line is great. It thoroughly covered each topic with a reasonable amount of questions. I like the course by course format. It's very doable. It's very nice that you can have access to a tutor. Overall very time and cost efficient. I will be back for more courses in the future. Thank you for a very good experience.

I'm interested in economics principally for the practical applications--so the chapters on international trade, public and private debt, cost-push and demand-pull inflation, unemployment, etc. were particularly interesting. The (often funny) musings of economists in the Last Word sections also served to make the course more applicable to real-world situations.

The 10 question practice quiz and chapter quizes in the study guide were most helpful, as they forced me to go back and review the chapters and looking for the answers, I was able to understand the topic more. This helped w/ the end of chapter exams.

To my surprise, I actually enjoyed a subject I had previously had little interest in. The course material was challenging, but with few exceptions, doable. Those few exception were for the most part simply due to my mathematical shortcomings, more than the material itself. Even those, however, with more review of the study material and refiguring my missed answers after the test, I was able to understand. The material built on itself, and I was able to both grasp more and score higher on the exams as the course went along. Overall, a much more enjoyable experience than I had expected and everyone has been very helpful.

Very informative! I learned a lot of things but also remembered a lot too. I will be taking more courses. the key is to study the required book way before you plan to take the course. That way if you need something you know where to find it. I Love SL. Now lets just hope my school accepts your courses.
