Economics for The Virtual Enterprise
Course Code: TJH
This course explores the relationship between total spending in the economy, production, and prices. It illustrates how increases in spending generate increases in production when the economy is producing below capacity. At capacity, output cannot grow. At this point, increases in spending can only show up as higher prices or inflation. Economic outcomes such as prices of goods, the amount of private and public investment, the wealth or poverty of nations and persons, unemployment rates, the structure of organizations, the benefits and burdens of globalization and trade, the quality of the environment and health care are explored.
