Competing theories of Macroeconomics are analysed in the context of the assumptions on which they are based. These theories have widely differing implications for countercyclical fiscal and monetary policy. Students will develop their own informed view of how the Macroeconomy works.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Explain rival macroeconomic theories and the assumptions underpinning them;
2. Use macroeconomic theory to develop recommendations for appropriate monetary and fiscal policy and be able to explain the reasons for these proposals; and
3. Reflect upon their unit experience, including theories, discussions and feedback, and how it relates to the goals set out in their professional portfolio.
One 2 hour lecture and one 1 hour tutorial on-campus per week.
