Economics (Course - Overview)

Course Overview

A comprehensive e-learning course library comprising 16 courses on various topics in understanding Economics. This e-learning course on Economics introduces the key concepts in micro- and macroeconomics.

The course introduces some of the important concepts such as elasticity and efficiency, which enable analysts to differentiate among various companies on an individual level, and to determine their attractiveness for an investor. The course also compares and contrasts the different market structures in which firms operate, that are monopoly, perfect competition, monopolistic competition and oligopoly.
The course then introduces the macroeconomic concepts that have an impact on all firms in the same environment. The course explains the business cycle, the impact of changes on price levels and profitability, and how an economys aggregate supply and aggregate demand are determined. Finally the course discusses the monetary sector of an economy. It examines the functions of money, how it is created, and the role of the central bank. The course also describes the concept of inflation and circumstances that lead to inflation.

Finally, the course explores the goals and implications of fiscal and monetary policy with the help of main models of macroeconomic theory Keynesian, classical, and monetarist.
