Student Evaluations - 4.73/5
The basic toolkit of the modern economist relies on micro-foundations. From macroeconomics to cutting-edge behavioral topics, the economist builds models that rigorously formulate their assumptions and provide testable predictions for how the world works. This class is designed to enhance your understanding of economics beyond the basic ideas presented in a principles course. We will explore the origins of the familiar supply and demand models, discuss behavior under various market settings, and think about how policies affect decision-making.
