Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The lessons learned in macro economics are easily related to the real world, especially during the election year of 2016. Mrs. Morshed knows this and has you apply lessons to real world problems. You can then take things one step further and validate or invalidate any claims made by candidates about the impact of their economic policies. It also helped me discern whether or not to invest money, because now that I have a basic understanding of the money supply, I know what direction interest rates will go and whether or not they are favorable to any available securities.
The highlights for me was applying lessons to real life problems. Creating a monetary policy proposal and making cuts to the national budget taught me that theory isn't enough. With problems that are so crucial to the lives of millions, it is necessary to come up with innovative solutions that solve problems at the root.
