This is an introductory course to macroeconomics. It intends to investigate the dynamics of aggregate economic variables such as national income, consumption, investment and the like. It attempts to answer economic questions such as: What are the determinants of economic wealth and individual welfare in the long-run? Why is it that recessions and expansions alternate? What are the determinants of unemployment and inflation? What policies authorities may apply to increase economic growth and reduce unemployment and inflation?
