3 credit hours
Describes how national and international economies function from the perspective of the citizen policymaker. Studies how national wealth is produced, how economies grow or fail to grow, how national economic activity is measured, and how policy makers use tax, budgetary and money supply policies to encourage good things (like growth, stability and full employment) and to discourage bad things (like poverty, unemployment, and rapid inflation).
