Top Courses in Economics

Courses are academic classes taught by qualified instructors that are intended to enhance participant’s knowledge of a given area or training in a particular discipline. Courses vary broadly in terms of length, size, content and duration.

Those who study economics first and foremost learn the differences between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics involves the behavior of individual markets, such as households and firms, and their interactions. Macroeconomics, on the other hand, involves looking at the entire economy as a whole.

This, presented by Prof. Mark Swilling, will entail an understanding of four dimensions of this endeavour: (a) the way South African economic history has been understood from a political economy perspective; (b) the dynamics of post-1994 economic policy making and why the challenge of radical economic restructuring has not been adequately addressed; (c) the challenge of state capture from the perspective of the literature on neo-patrimonialism; and (d) potential alternatives, including industrial policy, radical green economy developments, ‘radical economic transformation’ and Fanonist perspectives on resistance and change....

About

In recent years, after reducing their reference interest rates at nearly 0%, most central banks designed a variety of novel monetary policy tools to fight recessions, including communication strategies, credit policies, and large-scale asset purchases. These new measures often referred to as “unconventional” monetary policies. The objective of this course is to provide participants with a thorough understanding of the state-of-the-art research on different types of unconventional policies, of their costs and benefits, and of their effects on financial and aggregate economic variables.

The Barcelona GSE Intensive Course on Unconventional Monetary Policy’s faculty includes some of the leading academics and economists in the area of monetary policy, with extensive experience in policymaking institutions such as the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank.
