This unit is designed to provide an introductory analytical framework for the study of macroeconomics. Particular emphasis is placed on the relationships between different sectors of the economy and on the policy implications of the framework developed. Topics covered in the course include the theories of the determination of output, employment and growth, including the role of overseas trade: the role of money, banking and the rate of interest in the economy; the labour market and inflationary processes. Wherever possible current Australian illustrations will be given.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Explain basic economic concepts and how the competitive market operates using demand and supply models;
2. Explain the meaning and significance of basic macroeconomic terms and concepts;
3. Undertake an analysis of the Australian economy using simple macroeconomic models using diagrams and in simple quantitative terms;
4. Explain how output, employment and price are determined using the basic aggregate demand/aggregate supply model; and
5. Describe how fiscal and monetary policies can be used to achieve macroeconomic goals in an open economy like Australia.
