- • Apply macroeconomic concepts to current and personal economic events and decisions.
In addition to writing about macroeconomic concepts, it’s equally important to be able to convey your understanding of these concepts by communicating them to others. In the workplace you might do this by writing briefs (like you did for Assignment 1), creating presentations, or writing reports for your manager or team. An example final report and optional template are provided below.
For this Final Report assignment, you can build off your previous economic brief and selected industry from Assignment 1, or you can select another industry such as Finance and Insurance, Health Care, or Manufacturing, and examine one of the macroeconomic indicators or policies below:
- • GDP growth
- • Unemployment rates
- • Inflation rates
- • Interest rates
- • Imports and exports
- • Government fiscal policy and issues related to taxation, government spending, and budget deficits
- • FED (central bank) monetary policy and issues related to the FED’s mission to stabilize the economy
