Macroeconomics

The field of economics is often broken down into two broad categories, which are: Macroeconomics and Microeconomics. Macroeconomics is a branch of economics that describes and explains economic processes and behavior of aggregates—income, employment, output, and so on—on a national scale. Throughout the history, the economy of any country went through four important phases considered as phases of the business cycles of the GDP (Gross Domestic Product). GDP as an important indicator in Macroeconomics is used to determine the value of all goods and services produced in the country and it examines the output growth of a country and how countries are getting better from a year to the next.

The subjects of the course are macroeconomic issues including the calculation of the real and nominal GDP, dealing with inflation and explaining some economic costs of inflation and causes of inflation (The demand-side effects and the supply-side effects). It also contains the unemployment in a country and explains the types of unemployment. GDP per capital is used in the course to make a comparison among countries to examine which country is better off. Recently, HDI (Human Development Index) indicator, which is developed by the UN, is used to calculating development of the countries since the indicator takes into accounts three important parts to examine the progressing of the countries which are: the health, education and wealth.

Two of the most important theories which can be studied throughout this course are the monetary and Macroeconomic theories that focus on some specific areas as follows:

  • The quantity theory of money.
  • Money and Inflation.
  • The velocity of circulation. This course is designed for students interested in understanding macroeconomic issues related to calculating the economic growth of countries and how countries are progressing. Since counties with higher GDP per capita can have higher standard of living and can afford better health care for their individuals and can also afford better education systems. The objective of the course is also to familiarize students with different types of unemployment since it has become a contemporary phenomenon in every corner in the world especially in our country.

Moreover, The course has been designed also to teach students the monetary policy tools that are the dominant forces in financial markets and always play a huge role in the macroeconomics to solve many economic problems including the inflation (a sustained increase in the general price level of all goods produced and services offered in an economy over a period of time).
