Macroeconomic Principles - ECON110

This unit is an introductory course in macroeconomics. It focuses on the economy as a whole; the economy seen as a set of markets related to each other, rather than on the features characterising the equilibrium in an individual market, for example, the market for shoes. Topics covered include gross domestic product (GDP), savings, unemployment, inflation, money, the balance of payments, exchange rates, fiscal policy and monetary policy. At the end of the course students should be able to apply the main model used by economists to represent the economy (aggregate supply-aggregate demand), identify the forces that determine the equilibrium level of output, employment, inflation, interest rates, the exchange rate and their movements, and be able to analyse and predict the effect of shocks to supply and/or demand.
