This course focuses on how economic models of market and human behavior are developed and used by economists to explain the pricing of goods and services. The goal of the course is to provide students with a strong foundation for their later work in theoretical and applied economics. By the end of the course you should have an understanding of the way in which economic agents (individual, firms, the government) make choices by optimizing their utility subject to constraints. You should also understand how economic welfare might be affected by market structure, market imperfections, and policy.
