Macroeconomics (14-18)

at Enrichment Day

President Ronald Reagan once described his administration’s view of economics in three sentences:

If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

After taking this course, you will be able to recognize the absurdity of breaking down the field of macroeconomics to these three principles. Nonetheless, our instructors will walk you through the way that national and international policies affect the economies of nations around the world. Looking at real-world examples, you will study all the external forces that influence a nation’s economic success. Along the way, you will, of course, sharpen your economic vocabulary and analyze concepts like national accounts, gross domestic product, unemployment rates, inflation, stagnation and stagflation. (Yes, that is a real thing.)

For over four centuries, economists have been influencing nations and now it’s your turn. So, stop being an armchair economist and come solve the problems associated with the unique scenarios we create in this one of a kind course!
