Macroeconomic Policy Making in Year 12

25 五月 2016

This month, the IB economists are, arguably, wearing the most important hats of their entire course: acting as macroeconomic policy makers.

Having analysed the major economic objectives that most governments across the world set for themselves, our aspiring economists are now studying the various approaches employed in an attempt to achieve these objectives. From demand-management to supply-side policies, they have evaluated the effectiveness of the different tools each policy type uses in order to control inflation, unemployment and get economies out of recessions.

Their discussions culminated in a presidential-style debate through which two political parties, the Keynesians and the Monetarists articulated their party manifestos and had their candidates passionately explaining why they should be elected. It’s obvious that they have been following the political and economic debates that currently dominate international news channels.

They also had time to discuss regulations put in place to promote competition in business and deal with giant monopoly firms, with a view of protecting consumer interests. We wish them all the very best as they prepare and revise for their upcoming end-of-year examinations.
