The microeconomics course discusses principles of markets and market failure relevant to global policy studies. The course introduces the basic tools of economic analysis as it engages contemporary examples of economic problems and policies.
Microeconomics for Global Policy Studies provides a framework for policy analysis with a focus on understanding economic markets and mitigating market failure in an international context. Using current policy examples, students will learn to apply to economic theory to analyze the response of firms and consumers to economic growth and policy changes. Assignments include weekly problem sets, take-home midterms exams, one group case project, and one in-class final.
