INTRODUCTION TO ECONOMICS
This course provides an introduction to micro and macro economic theory, looking at the ideas of important economic theorists such as Keynes and Friedman. It sets out to apply and appraise economic theories in the light of the collapse of the command system used in the former Soviet Union, the marketisation of the Chinese economy and the globalisation of the world economy. The current global crisis in ‘market led' financial systems, leading to state interventions, is also considered.
