In looking at economies as a whole - national, regional and international - this course provides explanations for broader economic changes to society. The relation between households, businesses and governments and the consequences for the working of the economy will be examined. This course covers key themes and debates in macroeconomics, such as growth, employment policy, the stability of prices and exchange rate movements as well as the design and application of fiscal and monetary policy in the 21st century.
