In a changing global economy, the challenges posed by globalisation have necessitated the need for a deeper understanding of the basic principles and concepts that underlie macroeconomic theory and policy. This course is designed to provide students with an integrated view of the macroeconomy. The course aims to equip students with the fundamental macroeconomic tools and key ideas that have reshaped modern thinking about the macroeconomy. Emphasis is placed on the fundamental questions of what determines the living standards of the citizenry and the role of government in the functioning of the macroeconomy, as it pertains to output, employment and national income determination. Also investigated are contemporary macroeconomic policy debates, such as stimulus versus austerity measures.
