Course Objectives The course aims to introduce the intermediate macroeconomic concepts and to use both macro and microeconomic analysis to help students understand the way that the modern economy functions. In this course we focus on the behavior of aggregate variables such as income, employment, unemployment, inflation, exchange rate, the balance of payments, government spending, taxation, debt, growth and the interaction among the aforementioned aggregate variables. We also study when and how monetary and fiscal policies may or may not affect the macroeconomic aggregate variables.
