About the course
Using ONLY aggregate demand and aggregate supply, this course explains the basics of macro economic policy. The lectures are fully supported by notes - often repeated to ensure learning - that may be copied and used for other studies.
If you wish to understand more as to why governments cut/raise taxes, cut/raise government expenditure, how this impacts on inflation, unemployment and growth - then this is the course for you.

The course is pitched at a beginner level and thus is IDEAL for anyone just starting an economics course or simply wants to understand macro-economic policy.
The initial lectures are short - egg-timer size! - and, if you look at other egg-timer courses, you will know that if you have any questions then they will be answered very quickly.
The first part of the course also features a couple of 'revision sessions' just to check you have been following! (These are quite fast!)
