The Work I Did

In this class I learned how to analyze the aggregate behavior of the US economy. I learned how to examine economic theory in the long run, short run, aggregated, and non-aggregated. I learned the determinants of income, savings, investment, and exchange rates. Lastly, I learned about the various monetary and fiscal policies that affect the business cycle. I applied this knowledge to quizzes, 2 midterms, a final exam, and problem sets.

Here are some samples of the work and knowledge I learned:
