The main objective of the course is to provide the student with an understanding of economics as a part of everyday life and introduce some basic macroeconomic concepts to help the student better understand the economy of the United States and the world.
General Learning Goals:
The students will demonstrate their abilities in problem solving and decision-
making abilities by applying macroeconomic concepts to the problem/short essay
