Economics as a social science is connected, directly or indirectly, with other fields of knowledge. Therefore, understanding the meaning of economic indicators, as well as its relationship with other fields (political, sociological or anthropological) can be very useful for any researcher.
The main objective of this seminar is to explain some concepts and basic economic indicators and their practical implication. In particular, GDP, prices, public finance, external sector and economic integration will be explained.
Latin America studies can need the understanding of these concepts in Spanish, so a basic level of Spanish is required to attend the seminar, but not to have economics knowledge.
