Studying the economy as a whole, macroeconomics tries to describe, measure and analyze different macro variables such as GDP, prices and inflation, jobs and unemployment, total consumption, investment, government spending and tax, money supply and demand, interest rate, trade surplus/deficit, BOP and exchange rate. Simple models will be built to help students understand relationship among these variables. The economy in the long-run and growth in the very long-run will also be considered, followed by economic fluctuations in the short-run. Policy comments and part of International Macro economics will be covered later in the course.
