The course equips political science students with a non-technical analysis of key macroeconomic variables and concepts. Therefore, no special knowledge of mathematics is required. In general, the importance of macroeconomic theory for a young political scientist is crucial in our time, because the interpretation of several phenomena, such as populism, which modern political science deals with, is significantly reduced to (macro) economic factors. That is, macroeconomic factors such as GDP, interest rates, unemployment, quantitative easing programs are used on daily basis by analysts and the media. As a result, how can a political scientist with the ambition to interpret issues related to the unequal distribution of political and social power succeed without the necessary familiarization with basic issues of macroeconomic theory and politics?
