Cíle předmětu
The main goal of the course is to complement theoretical knowledge about macroeconomics with practical applications. Specifically, the goal is to
- illustrate the working of macroeconomic mechanisms by using examples with real macroeconomic data,
- broadening the understanding of basic macroeconomic principles with practical historical examples,
- discuss possible different impacts of implemented economic policies,
- practise understanding mutual interrelationships between macroeconomic variables,
- develop the ability to think economically and use theoretical knowledge to explain the causes of specific macroeconomic phenomena and address specific macroeconomic problems.
Výstupy z učení
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will have a broader view of macroeconomics, will know the broader links among macro-variables and will be able to discuss specific macroeconomic problems.
Specifically, the student will be able to, for example,
- calculate basic macroeconomic variables such as GDP, inflation, or unemployment from underlying data,
- understand specific impacts on long-term economic growth of events such as changing the rate of savings, changing population growth, war, etc.
- calculate short- and long-term equilibria in simple macroeconomic models,
- consider alternative potential impacts of model changes in fiscal, monetary, or trade policy.
