Course Outline & Policies
Late and absent assignments should be submitted on canvas.
We will begin with basic economic principles, exploring the concepts of opportunity cost and production possibilities. Then we delve into the basic microeconomic principles of supply, demand, and equilibrium so we can build into more complex macroeconomic projections. We will measure economic performance and build an understanding of national income and price determination, which will allow us to study the financial sector. From there we will study the impact macroeconomic policies, inflation, and unemployment in relation to economic growth. We will finish with international trade and finance including an in depth look at the stock market.
