Econ 201 - Macroeconomics - Alina Seygalus-Gershkova
I will be your instructor for the course. I have a M.A. in Economics and hope to instill the love of Economics in all of you. You will be assigned required readings from our selected class textbook.
ECON 201 introduces the concepts and tools of macroeconomic analysis, especially as they apply to US economy. Emphasis is placed on the broad overall performance of our economic system with concentration in areas such as national income determination, employment, and inflation. ECON 201 develops a logical analysis of short-term- business fluctuations in the economy and the long-term goal of “Full Employment” and then introduces governmental fiscal and monetary policies as possible solutions to them.
