This unit will provide an understanding of the macroeconomic theories in the context of open economies. The unit moves forward from the policy focus of MAE202 National Economic Policy and scrutinises the theoretical underpinnings of economic policy in open economies, such as monetary and fiscal policy and exchange rate determination. It addresses key issues involved in macroeconomic analysis as it informs policy treatment of fluctuations and growth in open economies and integration into the global economy.
