The course Macroeconomics Tutorial supplements the course Macroeconomics 2. The main goal of the course is to enable the students a better understanding and application of the knowledge acquired in the course of intermediate macroeconomics. The student will be able to analyze macroeconomic models, to understand relationships between macroeconomic variables and to put these relations into broader context. Students will be able to apply acquired knowledge to particular simplified examples. Altogether, students will develop their economic thinking and subsequently use theories for explanation of concrete macroeconomic events and solving of concrete macroeconomic problems.
