Introduction to Economics II

What makes an economy healthy, and how can economic ill-health be treated?

This course introduces students to basic macroeconomic concepts and theories but differently than the conventional courses. This is accomplished by adopting a historically and socio-politically informed standpoint in the teaching material, pedagogy and assessments. The course exposes students to macroeconomic themes like national income accounting, determination of output and employment, fiscal and monetary policies. It provides students with a series of capstones that allow for them to engage with real world issues like inequality, unemployment and ecological challenges. Students learn to interpret macroeconomic data in the Indian context.
