Following an initial introduction to important general economic concepts, including demand and supply, the course examines the U.S. economy from a macro-economic perspective. It includes an analysis of (1) how unemployment, inflation, and Gross Domestic Product are measured, (2) different theories of why the economy goes through cyclical fluctuations (recessions and booms) in the short-run, (3) long-run economic growth, and (4) the use of monetary and fiscal policies to stabilize the economy.
