Macroeconomics A Comprehensive Economics Course


Just a curious mind and an interest in the world around you!


This Macroeconomics course is ideal for anyone interested in gaining a further understanding of the world around you!  Economics is the study of human behavior and how we act in an economic setting, but more than that it provides us with a better understanding of global politics and the tensions between nations today.Complete with over 85+ video lessons and downloadable notes, the course covers:Introduction to MacroeconomicsGross National Product and Other Economic MeasuresAggregate Demand and Aggregate SupplyMacroeconomic EquilibriumLow UnemploymentLow and Stable Rate of InflationEconomic GrowthEquity in the Distribution of IncomeFiscal and Monetary PolicySupply-Side PoliciesAnd a love of Economics that I hope is contagious!I teach Economics because it fascinates me. Because it is the study of human behavior. Economics isn’t about data and graphs and problem sets. It is the study of people and their story and their history and the forces of society that we are born into. It provides us with an understanding of ourselves. It is not hyperbole to say that a thorough understanding of economics enables us to better understand the human condition. I truly believe that.As a former Peace Corps Volunteer, a graduate of Duke University, and someone who has been fortunate enough to have traveled to over 55 countries around world, you will see how those experiences shape my teachings of Economics. Economics is the study of human behavior; and it is as a result of that behavior that economists have something to put into data charts and diagrams to study. Don’t ever forget that!I am looking forward to being a part of your studies if Macroeconomics!
