MOTIVATION

I make courses on Udemy primarily because I enjoy the process of causing learning. Many of my courses are to improve lives. One of the Economics courses is to raise money for charity. (100% of revenue goes to the charity) Fundamentally this course here, is about helping you.

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.

Topics:

  • Aggregate demand

  • Aggregate supply

  • November 2017 Budget (UK)

  • Shifts in AD/AS

  • Macro-economic equilibrium

  • Spare capacity

  • The Multiplier

  • Output gaps

  • Economic growth

  • Supply-side policies

  • Inflation

  • Unemployment

  • Trade

  • Monetary policy

  • Export-led growth

  • September 2018 revision section

  • BREXIT

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!)

EXTENDED REVISION SECTION (14 Revision Lectures)

The second half of the course consists of case studies based on articles in July 2018. This is to give you the opportunity to check what you know - and then (if you wish) send answers in!
