Fiscal Policy Online Course for Teachers and Students

Fiscal Policy

Inflation, unemployment, recession, economic growth—these economic concepts affect people in very real ways. In two thought-provoking, interactive lessons, this course teaches students about fiscal policy, the avenue by which Congress and the president attempt to influence the economy.

Three courses that would further students' understanding of the content are: “GDP and Pizza;” “The Story of Unemployment;” and “Monetary Policy.”

To register your students for one or more of these courses, visit the Instructor Management Panel.
