This course is an introductory course. It introduces students to a wide range of economic concepts. Microeconomics is concerned with how economic systems operate to allocate resources, distribute income, and organize production through the decisions of individual economic agents (e.g. firms and consumers). We will focus solely on the operation of a market economy in this endeavor.
In such an economy, markets determine society’s production and consumption decisions by transmitting information about the plans of buyers and sellers (consumers and firms).
This information appears in the form of market prices, on the basis of which economic agents make decisions regarding the allocation of economic resources between the production of different goods and services: much of microeconomics is concerned with analyzing the efficiency with which such decisions are made.
