Course DescriptionThis course introduces students to the theory and practice of intermediate-level macroeconomics. Topics include data collection and measurement of key macroeconomic variables, the closed economy one-period model, models of economic growth, search and unemployment, and inflation. Data collection will involve downloading economic series from data bases such as the CANSIM database of Statistics Canada and working with spreadsheets such as EXCEL.
On-campus exam requirement: Beginning Fall 2022 your final exam will be written in person at the Toronto Metropolitan University campus. If you live more than 100 km from the TMU campus, you may arrange to write your exam off campus using an approved off-campus invigilation service.
