Recommended Posts

You can register on MIT Opencourseware for Applied Macro- and International Economics at https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/sloan-school-of-management/15-012-applied-macro-and-international-economics-spring-2011/ 

About the course

Applied Macro- and International Economics uses case studies to investigate the macroeconomic environment in which firms operate. The first half of the course develops the basic tools of macroeconomic management: monetary, fiscal, and exchange rate policy. The class discusses recent emerging market and financial crises by examining their causes and considering how best to address them and prevent them from recurring in the future. The second half evaluates different strategies of economic development. Topics covered in the second half of this course include growth, the role of debt and foreign aid, and the reliance on natural resources.
