Description

Class Misc Info: There are two evening midterms for this class on Wednesday, February 13th and Wednesday, March 27th 6-8 pm. Students who register for this class MUST be able to take the midterms at those times.

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 and financial capital; externalities; public goods, income distributions, etc.). More importantly, students will be able to use the basic tools of economics to solve basic economic problems (Does it matter how many people use an iPhone? Why do people who drink soda pop care about the price of corn? How much will it cost to pay back your student loan and why?) 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 relatives, friends, and others they want to impress.
