Lesson 1, Topic 1
Adriene and Jacob teach you about macroeconomics. This is the stuff of big picture economics, and the major movers in the economy. Like taxes and monetary policy and inflation and policy. We need this stuff, because if you don’t have a big picture of the economy, crashes and panics are more likely. Of course, economics is extremely complex and unpredictable. Today we’ll talk about GDP as a measure of a country’s economic health, the basics of economic analysis, and even a little about full employment and unemployment.
