The “official” course objectives for ECON 201 are here.
The purpose of this course is to introduce you to economics in general and macro economics in particular. Economists view the world through a unique illuminating lens–they see things that other people do not. One of the goals of this course is to teach you how to see these things, too.
The two specific goals of this course are for you to:
- Learn what an educated person should know about economics and the US economy, and
- Learn how to analyze issues & problems the way an economist would.
