In this lesson module we will be examining macroeconomics at the national and international levels. We will explore key concepts that form the foundation of modern macroeconomics as it developed from the end of the Second World War and the establishment of the Bretton Woods system of global economic management to the most recent era of globalization since the end of the Cold War.

At the completion of the module, you should be able to describe how contemporary capitalist economies function nationally and internationally by utilizing the concepts you have learned to identify, describe, and explain key components of these economies.
