This is an international macroeconomics course that focuses on the interactions among credit markets, goods and services markets, and foreign exchange markets. This global framework is used to explain changes in a nation‘s economic health, its economic impacts on foreign countries, and the effects of government and central bank policies. This course develops and applies macroeconomic theories that relate the domestic economy (real and financial) to the global market with particular emphasis on nations’ monetary, banking, and financial systems. It also develops the cause and effect relationships among important macroeconomic variables, such as GDP (economic growth), inflation, unemployment, interest rates, and exchange rates. Additionally, it explores interconnections among and effectiveness of the central bank, treasury, and other government agencies in regulating domestic and international financial markets.
