ECON 1730 - Microeconomics - 3 credits
Hist/Soc/Behav Sci (05)
Global Perspective (08)
Microeconomics is a social science that studies how our society can maximize its economic welfare by the efficient use of resource and product markets. In order to facilitate this study, microeconomics has developed tools such as market models that simplify the complex real world situations. These tools are abstractions of reality from which basic economic principles can be derived. These principles act as a guide to our private and society's public choices. Fundamental issues covered are supply, demand, elasticity, competitive and non-competitive markets. International trade and the concepts of absolute advantage, comparative advantage and restrictive trade policies are also explored. The text has numerous topical examples such as free trade, interest groups, agricultural policy, advertising, health care and more. (Prerequisite(s): READ 0721 with a grade of "C" or better or appropriate assessment score) (MnTC: Goals 5 & 8) 3C/3/0/0
