  • Apply macroeconomic concepts to current and personal economic events and decisions.

In addition to writing about macroeconomic concepts, it's equally important to be able to convey your understanding of these concepts by communicating them to others. In the workplace you might do this by writing briefs (like you did for Assignment 1), creating presentations, or writing reports for your manager or team. An example final report and optional template are provided below.

  • Unemployment rates 
  • Inflation rates 
  • Interest rates 
  • Imports and exports 
  • Government fiscal policy and issues related to taxation, government spending, and budget deficits 
  • FED (central bank) monetary policy and issues related to the FED’s mission to stabilize the economy
