A course for public sector officials whose jobs require them to interact with and/or influence the enabling environment within which private sector firms operate.

The course is designed to assist officials who have no formal economics training to understand in a theoretically rigorous manner: how a modern economy operates and functions; how markets operate and grow; and, how firms makeinvestment, output and employment decisions. It will provide a better understand published economic research, statistical releases and media reporting thereby assisting in capacity building and knowledge development; and understand and anticipate firm and market responses to governmental actions and interventions thereby increasing the efficacy of policy and strategy development and implementation.
