Description: EEB stresses an understanding of the major macroeconomic forces affecting business in today’s global economy. Fluency in major macroeconomic concepts and forces enhances business decision making in the globally competitive product, financial, and labor markets that characterize the modern business environment. With this in mind, the learning objectives for the course include an understanding of 1) the key economic policy goals and how they are related: low unemployment, price stability and long-term sustainable growth; 2) the primary economic policy tools: fiscal policy and monetary policy; and 3) key economy-wide prices: inflation, interest rates, and exchange rates. Repeatable for Credit.
