This course develops student's abilities to use microeconomic analysis to further our understanding of public policy. Major topics include models of consumer and firm behavior, operation of market systems, public goods and externalities, market failure, benefit-cost analysis, and the impacts of government regulation on economic policy.

The course does not assume students have had MATH 115. Political science students without 115 or without the appetite for ECON 401 should find this an appealing course.
