  • Overview

    This is an introductory course on macroeconomics designed to help students understand the ways in which some of the important macroeconomic variables such as output, income, the price level, money and interest rates, balance of payments and the foreign exchange rate are determined in a market oriented open economy.

    Students enrolling in this course must have taken as a prerequisite Understanding Economics (DISS111) or a similar course on Principles of Economics elsewhere.

    The teaching materials for this course consist mostly of the macroeconomics chapters of Economics, Third edition, by Paul Krugman and Robin Wells. This was the textbook used for DISS111. This course will cover those chapters of the textbook on output, income and price determination and the economy?s trade relations and financial interactions with the rest of the world more extensively and deeply than Understanding Economics.
