Intermediate Macroeconomics

Module code: ECON2542

Module description

An intermediate level module that will further the understanding of macroeconomics from the Level 4 modules  both theoretically and in terms of applications to technological changes and economic growth. The application of theoretical concepts to economic events will be determined by economic issues that are predominating at the  time. The macroeconomic issues of monetary and fiscal policies will cover models and issues of macroeconomic regulation conducted by the ministry of finance (Treasury) and by the central bank (Bank of England). The macroeconomic policies will be presented in terms of their coherence, inflationary targeting, and imperfections  in the labour markets on the supply-side. Three macroeconomic models will be considered to enable students  to evaluate macroeconomics policy changes.
