ECON 2020: Principles of Economics: Macroeconomics

Studies the determinants of aggregate economic activity, the effects of monetary and fiscal policy upon national income, and economic policy toward unemployment and inflation.

The department recommends ECON 2010 to students intending to take only one semester of principles.
