Introduction to Macroeconomics Add to cart

College Credits: 3

Economics is the study of how best to allocate scarce resources among competing users. Its study can be divided into two parts, microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics is concerned with the individual agents operating within the economy, inclusive of households, individual workers and businesses and how they use the scarce resources available to them. It looks at the economy from the bottom-up. Macroeconomics, however, looks at the economy as a whole; or from the top-down. In more technical terms, macroeconomics studies the factors that influence aggregate demand and aggregate supply. Our focus will be on studying and understanding the macroeconomy. 

This course is designed as an introductory survey of the economic concepts that are commonly used in understanding economic issues at the aggregate, or national level. The emphasis is on examining the overall functioning of the economy, exploring and understanding such phenomena as gross domestic product, national income, unemployment, inflation, the business cycle, as well as the fiscal and monetary policy tools that can be used to achieve a desired economic objective. In addition, the course will provide a basic understanding of international economics, with a focus on exchange rates, international trade and balance of payment dynamics.

Introduction to Philosophy Add to cart

College Credits: 3

This course covers the nature of philosophy, ethics, political philosophy, metaphysics, human nature, contemporary philosophy, and world philosophy. The material is organized by the major concepts, questions, and movements discussed by philosophers since the ancient Greeks and before, beginning in 1500 B.C. Events that are contemporaneous with major philosophers are related to the material as well. Ancient world philosophy and modern thinking relevant to our lives today are also explored. 

“The feeling of wonder is the mark of the philosopher, for all philosophy has its origins in wonder.” Plato’s statement about the nature of philosophy and the philosopher provides us with a starting point for examining philosophy as a subject and as an activity. 

The first scientists were pre-Socratics who looked for tangible explanations for physical phenomena rather than explaining those phenomena by referring to the activities of the gods and goddesses in another world. Every area of knowledge we now possess began in the wonder of those early first natural philosophers. If the tree is a good metaphor for knowledge creation, the roots were truly the first philosophical ideas. 

We can all learn to be philosophical and to make rational choices and decisions about our daily activities as individuals. Respecting each other’s rights and fulfilling our duties to each other can make a better world.
