    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.
