  一位已邁入 21 世紀的學生,你是否應該選擇修習總體經濟學呢?答案是肯定的。其原因有三:

其一, 總體經濟學將幫助你瞭解周遭世界所發生的事件,例如東歐的變革,西歐的高失業率,亞洲快速的經濟成長,美國的預算赤字,歐洲的整合,以及最近所發生的亞洲金融危機等。其二,研習總體經濟學將使你可以更精明地參與各項事務,諸如管理國家財經事務等。其三,研習總體經濟將使你對於國家經濟政策的成效和限制有較佳的理解。如以上所述,總體經濟學確實可以應用於日常生活中,不論你今後是否閱讀報刊雜誌,經營企業,或是高坐於總統府辦公室之中,你都將會因為曾經研習總體經濟學而感到欣慰。

(Abstract)

  In general, macroeconomics studies aggregate economic variables, such as production for the economy as a whole (aggregate output) or the average price of all goods (the aggregate price level). Why should you, as a student has been entered the twenty-first century, embark on the study of macroeconomics? There are three reasons. The first reason to study macroeconomics is that it will help you understand the whole world in which you live—from the transformation of Eastern Europe, to high unemployment in Western Europe, to fast growth or crises in Asia, to the budget battles in the United States. The second reason to study macroeconomics is that it will make you a more astute participant in the whole economy, for instance, how to manage the financial matters for your country. The third reason to study macroeconomics is that it will give you a better understanding of the potential and limits of economic policies. Thus, the principles of macroeconomics can be applied in many of life’s situations. Whether the future finds you reading the newspaper, running a business, or sitting in the Oval Office, you will be glad that you studied macroeconomics.
