This is a macroeconomics class. Interesting at times, though boring for the large majority.

BE WARNED: this is an economic theory subject. Everyone thought we would be discussing contemporary economic policy but we discussed the (dense) economic theory that underpins global economic policy. Subject was reasonably easy if you pay attention and pre-write your "exam" essays.

The subject is definitely very interesting. You must do the readings and do more research on your own to prepare for the subject, but it will definitely be worth it. The lecturer and tutor are very helpful as they will guide you throughout the exams and essays.

Great course. I would recommend that you do Joseph Halevi's ECOP2011 in S1 before this one because then it is a lot of overlap. Lecturer Susan Schroder does honestly try to keep you interested (even if she is sometimes a bit boring). For the 2 hour lecture she gave us the choice of either a break in the middle, or to cut the lecture half an hour short instead with no middle break. Pretty much told us what was in the exam and it was easy to fill in the blanks. However, like a lot of ECOP you need to go to the lectures. What stops this being 5 stars is there were NO recordings and even if there was, you would have missed at least 4 graphs per lecture. There was also a little lack of communication - if there was a problem with lecture slides or an assignment, Susan wouldn't tell you until you were all in the actual lecture. Tutor Ioulia Swain is great! she is quiet but she marks VERY fairly, knows her stuff, and explains it really well.
