This seminar will illustrate how elementary microeconomic tools can be used to illuminate observed real-world phenomena and to evaluate alternative policy interventions. Each student will complete a problem set and writing assignment. In addition, students will be required — as part of a team of three — to investigate in depth a single local, national, or international topic. Students on the same team who want to use their project toward honors will be encouraged to focus on different aspects of the overall topic. Students will choose from a list of topics either suggested by the instructor or by students in the class. A preliminary list of suggested topics will be available at the first meeting and it usually evolves during the first weeks of the seminar.

Students interested in enrolling in ECON 495 must submit an application.
