Overview

In this free macroeconomics course, following our Principles of Microeconomics, you’ll continue to explore the economic way of thinking and the role incentives play in all our lives.

We’ll cover fundamental macroeconomics questions such as: Why do some countries grow rich while others remain poor? How important is a country’s banking system — and what happened during the recent financial crisis? How did Zimbabwe end up with an inflation rate that rose into the quadrillions?

We’ll also cover important topics like the Federal Reserve, monetary policy, fiscal policy, the Solow Growth Model, institutional analysis, the “economics of ideas,” and more. We'll release a new video every Tuesday.
