    Syllabus

    This unit focuses on the role of government in the economy in the light of relevant microeconomic and macroeconomic theories. Such analysis incorporates the policy constraints imposed by a country's political institutions and culture. Particular attention is paid to the pressures on policy making that arise from external constraints and institutions.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to use intermediate economic theory to:

    1. Apply these theories to the analysis of contemporary economic problems in Australia; and

    2. Argue the case for taking differing approaches to a range of important microeconomic and macroeconomic policy challenges.
