This month’s featured module is the Long-Term Investing Decision and Long-Run Macroeconomic Growth module. The Module was developed by W. Edward Chi, reviewed, and published to the Resource Bank in the Summer of 2013. The Long-Term Investing Decision and Long-Run Macroeconomic Growth module was designed for the Principles of Macroeconomics at the undergraduate level. It was designed with accessibility in mind as the learning goals can be achieved with an audience able to perform basic arithmetic operations and able to understand the usefulness of money.
The Module focuses on three learning goals. The Learning Goals are:
- Use the “rule of 70” (or 72) to determine the time for an investment to double
- Interpret the effect of human capital, technology, physical capital, and institutional factors for the rate of growth in each country
- Use macroeconomic growth prospects to inform an investment decision
The Long-Term Investing Decision and Long-Run Macroeconomic Growth module includes a four question RAT and one Application Exercise.
