Microeconomics is the study of how small economic units, such as individual consumers and firms, engage in trade and set prices through their interaction in a world characterized by scarcity. We will examine models of consumer and firm behavior that allow for a rich analysis of the markets and the effects of government policy. This course will help students expand and refine their understanding of the theoretical tools utilized by microeconomists and provide an introduction to game theory and its applications. Students who complete this course will be prepared for more advanced economics courses in economic theory and applied microeconomic fields.
