This course is about Macroeconomics that has many real-life applications and implications on our daily lives through a nation’s income, cost of living, production and growth, business cycles, banking, the financial system, unemployment, the monetary system, inflation, and so forth. We have two main goals in this course: to understand (1) the macroeconomic environment that we are in, (2) how to improve this environment through relevant policies.
