MACROECONOMIC FLUCTUATIONS, GROWTH AND POLICY
Credit points: 15
In Macroeconomic Fluctuations, Growth and Policy, you will develop an understanding of the theories of aggregate demand, aggregate supply, unemployment and inflation. Furthermore, you will analyse these theories in the contexts of both closed and open economies, with reference to the fundamentals of business cycles. You will also demonstrate the ability to connect macroeconomic illustrations and the performance of financial markets with forward-looking behaviour. You will develop an appreciation of the applicability of these theories to the Australian economy. Working independently and working with other students, you will learn about the macro economy through solving problems.
