Description:(45 contact hours) This course will give you a thorough introduction to the field of macroeconomics. Macroeconomics helps answer many questions such as why income is high in some countries and low in others and why production and employment expand some years and contract in others. Because its implications are crucial to the quality of our lives, macroeconomics information shows up daily in newspapers and on the TV news. You often hear about such things as the rate at which average prices are rising (inflation) and the imbalance of trade between the United States and the rest of the world (the trade deficit). Economics professionals compile and monitor statistics about these things using macroeconomic analysis. In this course, you'll learn exactly how they do it-discovering how to analyze economy-wide phenomena, including inflation, unemployment, and trade deficits. You'll gain an understanding of why a solid foundation in macroeconomics is important for your studies and career. This course includes all required textbooks and access to expert instructors who can be reached by phone or e-mail.
