Description

The economic objectives of growth, price, stability and full employment are reviewed and evaluated in the light of current issues. The influences of political, social, legal, environmental, global, and technological issues are discussed in the process of presenting applications of macroeconomic theories. Discussions, quantitative and written analysis and evidence based research are encouraged. Three lecture hours per week. Required of all Economics majors and Business Administration majors.
