About Macroeconomic Principles - ECN 211
Macroeconomics is the study of the sum of all spending, income, and productive efforts. The economic outcomes that we experience are the result of our intricate dealings with other governments, businesses, and people, both locally and globally. This course will give you insight into how economists approach and measure these big issues and questions.
The second part of this course dives into policymaking and how these policies can either distort or enhance market outcomes. You will focus on five specific areas of economic policy:
- Free trade
- Research and development & innovation
- Fiscal and tax
- Inflation and monetary
- Unemployment and labor market policies
