Expanded Course Description
This class examines the aggregate (macro) performance of a market economy comprised of many independent decision-makers - namely households, firms and governments. It explores how we measure overall performance of the economy and the problems that may arise in a market economy, such as inflation and unemployment. It then examines the role of monetary policy in the economy, particularly through the Federal Reserve Bank, by its effect on interest rates, inflation and economic growth, and the role of fiscal policy (for example, government taxation and spending) on macroeconomic performance. Finally, the course examines international economic links between nations, including the role of exchange rates. Students should come away from the class with the ability to understand the economic phenomena we read and hear about everyday, as well as a better ability to judge the economic merits of various proposals by policymakers.
