PUBPOL 555: Microeconomics A
This course introduces the application of basic microeconomic analysis to public policy issues. The principal goal is to teach students the process of microeconomic reasoning and how to apply that reasoning to policy issues in the real world. The course covers the basic topics in microeconomic theory: consumer theory, production theory, competitive and non-competitive (e.g. monopolistic) markets, and game theory. Some calculus will be used along with a great deal of algebra and graphical analysis.
