  Course Overview

Welcome to Macroeconomics Online!

It is hard to improve upon this overview of economics from an online article on Schools of Economic Thought provided to the world by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco:

The word "economics" is derived from “oikonomikos,” which means skilled in household management. Although the word is very old, the discipline of economics as we understand it today is a relatively recent development. Modern economic thought emerged in the 17th and 18th centuries as the western world began its transformation from an agrarian to an industrial society.

Despite the enormous differences between then and now, the economic problems with which society struggles remain the same:

  • How do we decide what to produce with our limited resources?
  • How do we ensure stable prices and full employment of our resources?
  • How do we provide a rising standard of living both for ourselves and for future generations?

Economics is thus a study of human efforts to promote and conserve standards of living. This study involves understanding of the production, exchange, distribution, and consumption of the goods and services that are possible given resources and technology. The study of economics may be undertaken from a macro perspective of overall economic activity or a micro perspective of individual decision making in typical households, businesses, or governmental units.

This is a course in macroeconomics. The objective of the course is to provide some provisional answers to the following questions. What is the "economy?"  How do markets and government function to address fundamental problems caused by scarcity? How are general standards of living conceptualized, formulated and measured?  How are we to explain the (sometimes severe) fluctuations in living standards? What are the major public policy alternatives for dealing with these fluctuations, and what are their relative costs and benefits? Our study of macroeconomics will involve economic measurement, theory, and policy analysis which address these questions.

  Technology Requirements

  2. Explain the major institutions of capitalism; distinguish among pure capitalism, pure socialism, and mixed economic systems; describe the U.S. and other economies as they relate to these three economic forms.
  3. Describe the role of government in the U.S. economy; analyze the functions of government; explain the concepts of fiscal and monetary policy and how these tools of government policy are used.
  4. Describe the major components of GDP, including consumption, investment, government, and net exports; explain and analyze the factors that impact each of these components of aggregate spending.
  5. Describe and explain the banking system, including the role of commercial banks and the Federal Reserve and describe the way in which money is created in our economy.

  Assignment Overview

Readings

Complete all assigned weekly readings prior to submitting assignments or taking quizzes for the week so the concepts covered can inform your work.

Discussions

Discussion posts and responses should be completed after the assigned readings. Collaboration and interaction are encouraged, but points are not given for mere chat -- please reserve that for the General Discussion topics of the course.

Once you’ve made your initial post in response to the prompt, respond to a minimum of two of your fellow classmates’ postings. Initial discussion postings are due by 11:59 pm CT Thursday and responsive posts are due by 11:59 pm CT Sunday of each week except in Week 8, when they are due by 11:59 pm CT Saturday. Discussions are worth 25 points each.

You must provide an initial post before gaining access to your classmates' posts.

Concept Analyses

The Concept Analysis assignments must be completed using MyEconLab and are broadly focused. They require application of formulas, mathematical calculations, tables, graphs as well as theory. The foundation for each of the problems is presented in detail in our textbook.

There are two Concept Analysis assignments. Concept Analysis I will be in Week 2, and Concept Analysis II will be in Week 6. Each Concept Analysis assignment is worth 100 points and will consist of 20 problems/questions. Each Concept Analysis assignment will open on Monday and close on the following Sunday at 11:59 pm CT. A student has two attempts at every problem. There is no time limit, and problems for each week may be accessed multiple times. Upon submission, results will be automatically scored and immediately available for viewing. However, detailed results of submissions, including correct and incorrect answers, will be made available for viewing only after the deadline for submission has passed. Students are encouraged to use the text (paying particular attention to “key graphs”) and the resources in MyEconLab accompanying the text as resources.

Concept Analysis Answers Submitted in Error: The advantage of two attempts at each question comes with a cost. Once the end of time period for submission has passed, those answers are unchangeable. If the student erroneously checks a wrong selection or superimposes or misaligns their answer electronically from what they had intended, the answer is deemed to be the student’s final answer for that attempt. The student assumes all responsibility for submitting their intended choices.

Make-up Concept Analysis assignments are allowed only for exceptional circumstances as detailed in the Late Assignments Policy.

MyEconLab Homework

Each week, there will be 25 questions to complete in MyEconLab. There are 8 MyEconLab modules, one for every week, worth 25 points each. Each module will open on Monday and close on the following Sunday at 11:59 pm CT except for Module 8 which will close on Saturday. A student has two attempts at every homework problem. There is no time limit and problems for each week may be accessed multiple times. Upon submission, results will be automatically scored and immediately available for viewing. Detailed results of submissions, including correct and incorrect answers, will be made available for viewing only after the deadline for submission has passed. You are encouraged to use the text (paying particular attention to “key graphs”) and the resources in MyEconLab accompanying the text as resources.

You are responsible for observing the rules regarding academic honesty noted above in regard to homework on MyEconLab.

Homework Submitted in Error: The advantage of two attempts at each question comes with a cost. Once an answer is finally submitted, those answers are unchangeable. If the student erroneously checks a wrong selection or superimposes or misaligns their answer electronically from what they had intended, the answer is deemed to be the student’s final answer for that attempt. The student assumes all responsibility for submitting their intended choices.

Make-up MyEconLab assignments are allowed only for exceptional circumstances as detailed in the Late Assignments Policy.

Midterm and Final Exams

There will be a midterm and final exam, each consisting of 50 multiple choice questions, worth 200 points each. These exams are designed to facilitate the learning and application of economic concepts as well as assess student progress toward the goals and objectives of the course. Both exams are open book and taken online, without a proctor, and under the assumption that the student has read this syllabus in general, and the section on Academic Honesty in particular.

Exams will open on Wednesday and close on Sunday at 11:59 pm CT during the week in which they occur, except in Week 8 when the Final will close at 11:59 pm CT on Saturday. The Midterm is assigned during Week 4 and the Final Exam during Week 8. Make-up examinations are allowed only for approved reasons and excused absences.

Note: You will have exactly 75 minutes to complete this exam.  If you log out, the time will continue to run. You are responsible for your own answers and allowed only one final submission. Upon submission, the results will be automatically scored and thus immediately available for review in the "Grades" section. Incorrectly answered questions will be made available for viewing for ten minutes after you submit your exam.

Exams submitted in error: The advantage of open-note exams comes with a cost. Once an exam is submitted, those answers are unchangeable. If the student erroneously checks a wrong selection or superimposes or misaligns their answer electronically from what they had intended, the answer is deemed to be the student’s final answer. The student assumes all responsibility for submitting their intended choices.

Exams not submitted: The submission of an exam is a function performed by the student when clicking the “submit” button in the module. If a student tries to send their responses via e-mail to the instructor, D2L or the Technology Solutions Center (http://web.ccis.edu/Offices/TechnologyServices/Support.aspx), this is deemed “not submitted” and receives a score of 0. Because each student is given five (5) days to submit the Mid-Term Exam and four (4) days to submit the Final Exam, “My ISP is down,” or “my computer broke,” or “the website is slow,” are never valid excuses to not submit an exam.

  Course Policies

Student Conduct

All Columbia College students, whether enrolled in a land-based or online course, are responsible for behaving in a manner consistent with Columbia College's Student Conduct Code and Acceptable Use Policy. Students violating these policies will be referred to the office of Student Affairs and/or the office of Academic Affairs for possible disciplinary action. The Student Code of Conduct and the Computer Use Policy for students can be found in the Columbia College Student Handbook. The Handbook is available online; you can also obtain a copy by calling the Student Affairs office (Campus Life) at 573-875-7400. The teacher maintains the right to manage a positive learning environment, and all students must adhere to the conventions of online etiquette.

Plagiarism and Academic Integrity

Your grade will be based in large part on the originality of your ideas and your written presentation of these ideas. Presenting the words, ideas, or expression of another in any form as your own is plagiarism. Students who fail to properly give credit for information contained in their written work (papers, journals, exams, etc.) are violating the intellectual property rights of the original author. For proper citation of the original authors, you should reference the appropriate publication manual for your degree program or course (APA, MLA, etc.). Violations are taken seriously in higher education and may result in a failing grade on the assignment, a grade of "F" for the course, or dismissal from the College.

Collaboration conducted between students without prior permission from the instructor is considered plagiarism and will be treated as such. Spouses and roommates taking the same course should be particularly careful.

All required papers may be submitted for textual similarity review to Turnitin.com for the detection of plagiarism. All submitted papers may be included in the Turnitin.com reference database for the purpose of detecting plagiarism. This service is subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use posted on the Turnitin.com site.

Non-Discrimination

There will be no discrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, ideology, political affiliation, veteran status, age, physical handicap, or marital status.

Student Accessibility Resources

Students with documented disabilities who may need academic services for this course are required to register with the office of Student Accessibility Resources. Until the student has been cleared through this office, accommodations do not have to be granted. If you are a student who has a documented disability, it is important for you to read the entire syllabus as soon as possible. The structure or the content of the course may make an accommodation not feasible. Student Accessibility Resources is located in Student Affairs in AHSC 215 and can be reached by phone at (573) 875-7626 or email at sar@ccis.edu.

Online Participation

You are expected to read the assigned texts and participate in the discussions and other course activities each week. Assignments should be posted by the due dates stated on the grading schedule in your syllabus. If an emergency arises that prevents you from participating in class, please let your instructor know as soon as possible.

Attendance Policy

Attendance for a week will be counted as having submitted any assigned activity for which points are earned. Attendance for the week is based upon the date work is submitted. A class week is defined as the period of time between Monday and Sunday (except for week 8, when the work and the course will end on Saturday at midnight.) The course and system deadlines are based on the Central Time Zone.

Cougar Email

All students are provided a CougarMail account when they enroll in classes at Columbia College. You are responsible for monitoring email from that account for important messages from the College and from your instructor. You may forward your Cougar email account to another account; however, the College cannot be held responsible for breaches in security or service interruptions with other email providers.

Students should use email for private messages to the instructor and other students. The class discussions are for public messages so the class members can each see what others have to say about any given topic and respond.

Late Assignment Policy

An online class requires regular participation and a commitment to your instructor and your classmates to regularly engage in the reading, discussion and writing assignments. Although most of the online communication for this course is asynchronous, you must be able to commit to the schedule of work for the class for the next eight weeks. You must keep up with the schedule of reading and writing to successfully complete the class.

The Late Assignment Policy operates on the assumption that submitting assignments is the student’s responsibility.

No late discussion posts will be accepted.

Dropbox Assignments that are late may be turned in for partial credit. That is, all late dropboxes receive a late penalty of six points. No late dropboxes will be accepted (i.e. graded) two weeks after original assigned week closes nor after the course has ended. All dropboxes must be uploaded in the D2L module for the appropriate week. The instructor will not accept dropboxes via e-mail.

My EconLab assignments that are late may be completed for partial credit. That is, all late My EconLab assignments will receive a late penalty of three points. Late My EconLab assignments will only be accepted up to one week after the original assigned week closes. Subsequent submissions will receive no credit, unless approved by the instructor.

Exams are scheduled for weeks four and eight. Once that week has passed the opportunity to take the exam expires. The one exception is for a documented emergency, such as a medical condition.  If an emergency can be shown, make-up credit will be allowed once approved by the instructor and the emergency circumstances have been confirmed.

Once the course has ended the opportunity to earn points terminates.

Course Evaluation

You will have an opportunity to evaluate the course near the end of the session. A link will be sent to your CougarMail that will allow you to access the evaluation. Be assured that the evaluations are anonymous and that your instructor will not be able to see them until after final grades are submitted.
