Intermediate Macroeconomics

Module code: EC2013

In this module you will move onto the next stage of macroeconomics and gain a greater understanding of the interactions between financial markets and the macroeconomy. You will use the foundations of the macroeconomic models from your first year modules to identify trends that make up the macroeconomic environment such as GDP, inflation, fiscal and monetary policies.  You will be shown how central banks manage money supply and interest rates (monetary policy) and how they influence the microeconomic environment. This will be done through analysis of global financial crises and macroeconomic responses.
