ECON19033  Macroeconomics

This course builds on the introductory macroeconomic theory presented in Principles of Economics (ECON11026  ).

It develops the theory of economic growth and explores the causes and effects of the business cycle. It examines the neo-classical, Keynesian and modern theories of income determination and explores the nature and causes of inflation and unemployment.

It develops the tools of fiscal and monetary analysis and links the theory to contemporary macroeconomic policy settings. Finally, it examines the balance of payments and the theory of international trade using recent Australian data and explores the roles of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in stabilising world trade and assisting developing countries to attain macroeconomic maturity.
