Major topics included measurement of economic performance, national income and price determination, fiscal and monetary policy, and international economics and growth.
My classes are interactive, student oriented and accented with a broad range of knowledge of other countries and academic subjects. I have a strong clear voice and I am expressive in my oral presentations to the students.
