This course studies microeconomics theory at the intermediate level. The aim is to provide you with the basic terminology, analytical tools, and intuition to discuss and address economic issues. These are essential tools for your career as an economist and to pursue further economic studies. We will discuss consumer theory and producer theory in perfectly competitive markets, as well as introducing general equilibrium analysis. This course will be delivered remotely as a mix of pre-recorded videos, live streamed lecture, and a live streamed question period (note: questions are derived from responses to the surveys and tutorial discussions.) Due to the remote nature of the delivery, you will need access to a computer with a reliable internet connection and audio/video capabilities during exams and an ability to capture/photograph/scan written work for assignments and exams.
The required textbook for this class is Perloff’s Microeconomics: Theory and Applications with Calculus 5th Edition Ebook.
