During this introductory course will focus on 3 major macroeconomics indicators. These indicators include GDP, CPI, and the Unemployment Rate. Evaluating these three measures can help us gauge how well an economy is doing. The goal of this project is to compare the US Economy with another large economy by focusing on these three main variables. You will choose your other country from the list below.
