Students learn about the aggregate behavior of national and international economies, and how to measure aggregate levels of production, consumption, employment, and inflation. Issues discussed in the class include how countries can benefit and lose from international trade; what are the immediate, short run, and long run effects from shocks to the economy such as exogenous changes in aggregate spending, factors affecting production, or government intervention; and what are the goals of fiscal and monetary policy, and what are some of their positive and negative impacts on the economy. Prerequisite: ECON-102 or 60 completed credits.
