Harris Hall 107: Tues, Thurs 11:00AM - 12:20PM

Overview of class

This course introduces the major topics of microeconomics that are typically not covered in 310-1. It provides students with analytical tools to understand various economic phenomena. Among the topics covered are: social choice theory, general equilibrium in perfectly competitive markets, elementary game theory, oligopoly (Cournot, Bertrand and Stackelberg models), and the economic consequences of uncertainty and asymmetric information.

Registration Requirements

ECON 310-1 or MMS 211-1 (or equivalent)

Class Materials (Required)

NONE - There is no required textbook for the course. Your 310-1 textbook is likely to have some coverage of most of the topics in the course. However, since the lectures are the primary source for the course, you can manage without any textbook.

Class Materials (Suggested)

Jeffrey M. Perloff, "Microeconomics: Theory and Applications with Calculus" (Pearson/Addison- Wesley,4th edition). ISBN: 978-0-13-416738-1 (Previous editions and newer are acceptable.)
