Course content

Since the 2008 financial crisis took hold, there has been a major intellectual shift, both in the discipline of economics and in the wider economic and social policy world, towards a renewed interest in macroeconomics. This has posed an intellectual challenge within a national discipline that had side-lined macroeconomic analysis. The Economics discipline at the OU has taken up the challenge of renewing its macroeconomic expertise, developing macroeconomic research, and applying our interdisciplinary and pluralistic approach to economics to macroeconomic processes related to income distribution, industrial dynamics, and social and welfare processes.
