It is important for businesses, households, and governments to understand the macroeconomic environment in which they operate. Consequently, students need to understand macroeconomic theory and be able to apply that theory in interpreting and analysing macroeconomic information, events and policy. This course focuses on contemporary macroeconomic events and theory that may be used in their explanation. Emphasis is placed on the development of skills required for macroeconomic analysis in the context of business and household decision making and government policy.
