ECON 101 is designed to help students understand the economic method through the study of the principles of microeconomics. By the end of the academic term, students should understand basic concepts in economics (opportunity cost; comparative advantage; marginal utility and marginal productivity; human, financial, and physical capital; externalities; public goods, income distributions, etc.). More importantly, students will be able to use the basic tools of economics. That is, students will be able to solve basic economic problems (Why does Verizon bundle products together? Why are fresh water rights at a premium right now? How does discounting relate to mortgage payments?)

Students who plan to continue in economics will have a solid grounding in basic theory and will be prepared for advanced classes. Students who will never take another economics class will be able to explain pertinent economic dilemmas to mom, dad, relatives, friends, and others they want to impress.

For textbook information, please visit the ECON Textbook Information Website. Information will be posted for each class as soon as it is available.
