This course is an introduction to macroeconomics analysis and its public policy applications. Macroeconomics develops the analytical tools for examining how such aggregate economic variables as national output, the unemployment rate, the price level, inflation, interest rates, exchange rates, budget deficits, the money supply and economic growth are determined. The models developed will be applied to consider how international trade and fiscal and monetary policy influence economic activity.
