class lecture
The module consists of a lecture and an exercise course. The lecture content will be delivered in a verbal presentation with the help of slides. Since the foundation of the lecture is a textbook including recent economic history, the teaching is full of real life examples. The content of the lecture is put into practice in the exercise course which applies the theoretical knowledge by basic mathematical calculations and graphical illustrations. Therefore, the module aims at encouraging participants to independently think about economic problems discussed in the lecture and in the current literature. Students are enabled to use the instruments (abstract and model thinking) for operationalizing economic problems and solve them in the conventional, mathematical manner.
