Units (Grade Option) 3; Class Hours: Minimum of 48 lecture hours/semester; Recommended: Eligibility for READ 836, and ENGL 836 or ESL 400; Prerequisite(s): None.

Description: The course examines the American macroeconomic system and its effects on social, cultural and political environments. The course begins with a study of allocation mechanisms for scarce resources, including but not limited to, the price mechanism. The student then develops the analytical tools of supply and demand. After developing this basic model, the course examines and critiques definitions of GDP, unemployment and price indices such as CPI. Once basic definitions have been established, the course examines the long run classical macroeconomics model for growth and the role of Saving to long run growth. The course finishes with an examination of the role of The Federal Reserve Bank and the short run macro stablization model. Transfer: CSU: DSI, UC. (IGETC: 4)
