Economics Individual Study Project
This assignment is intended to asses your knowledge, application and analytical skills in recommending economic actions currently faced by the economies around the world.
We have discussed different macroeconomic objectives in class and how government takes policies to achieve those objectives.

In this project you are going to explore the real macroeconomic world. You will work with a selected country and research on it’s macroeconomic policies. You will describe and evaluate and most importantly recommend macroeconomic policies. Welcome to the world of Economists!!!
