Macroeconomics Performance Indicators (edX)
The macroeconomy affects business conditions and broader social outcomes. Learn about key performance indicators of macroeconomics such as GDP, unemployment and inflation. This course consists of two types of materials. The first type of materials concerns with how to measure the performance of the economy as a whole. The second type of materials concerns how to explain why a country underperforms in one or more of these aspects, and what can be done about it. The behaviour of an economy as a whole is often broadly predictable, but sometimes it can suddenly change. You will learn how to understand macroeconomic data and know how it can be interpreted for analysis.
