Welcome to the Principles of Macroeconomics. This course is not merely about digesting facts and theories but rather about equipping you with the necessary tools to understand the world around you from an economic perspective. Macroeconomics is the study of the economy as a whole, examining the ways in which broad factors such as the levels of income, employment, inflation, and government policies influence overall economic growth and stability.

We will begin the course with an overview of what economics is and why it is worth studying. We will then delve into the fundamentals of macroeconomic theory, including the concepts of supply and demand, equilibrium, and how these relate to the economy as a whole.

You will learn how to track and analyze economic indicators and the different macroeconomic models used to predict and explain economic changes. We’ll look at the role of government and the effects of fiscal and monetary policies on the economy. We’ll explore issues like unemployment, inflation, and international trade, and we’ll look at how they all fit together in the broader economic picture.

This course is designed to challenge your thinking, inspire debate, and cultivate a deep understanding of macroeconomic theory and practice. We will use real-world examples, case studies, and current events to illuminate our discussions and bring the theory to life. The knowledge and analytical skills you gain in this course will serve as a strong foundation for future study in economics and will be valuable in a wide range of careers.

Whether you are a future economist, a business leader, or a citizen who wants to understand the broader economic forces that shape your daily life, this course will offer you valuable insights and practical skills.
