Core Concepts Of Economics

This course will extend beyond the conventional structure-conduct-performance framework of industrial organization to focus on the theoretical models that inform the discipline and their empirical applications. In particular, students will use microeconomics and game theory to study models of imperfect competition and understand the implications for consumer welfare. We will analyze firm behavior and strategic interactions such as price discrimination, predatory pricing, limit pricing and investment under different market structures. We will also discuss various public policies that affect the structure of markets and the behavior of firms, specifically regulation, deregulation and antitrust laws.
The system eventually collapsed in the early seventies. After the demise of Bretton Woods, the role of the IMF was recast towards “surveillance, financial assistance, and technical assistance” as world economic conditions evolved. Efforts at salvaging the system were doomed and the world abandoned fixed for floating exchange rates.

The five fundamental principles of economics, basic terms we need to know in order to move on. By taking this free microeconomics course, you’ll Economics be exposed to the economic way of thinking. You’ll understand how to use economics in your life and, ultimately, see the world differently.

Competition can be categorized into perfect and monopolistic competition. Price elasticity can be termed as a measure of the response that demand has to a change in price. Economic incentives explain how the operation of supply and demand encourage producers to supply the goods that consumers want, and consumers to conserve on scarce resources. When consumer demand for a good increases, then the market price of the good rises, and producers have an incentive to produce more of the good because they can receive a higher price.
The slope of the curve at a point on it gives the trade-off between the two goods. It measures what an additional unit of one good costs in units forgone of the other good, an example of a real opportunity cost. Thus, if one more Gun costs 100 units of butter, the opportunity cost of one Gun is 100 Butter. Along the PPF, scarcity implies that choosing more of one good in the aggregate entails doing with less of the other good.

An equilibrium price internationally must ensure that the quantity of a good that consumers in one country want to import exactly equals the quantity that producers in the rest of the world want to export. A country that has an absolute advantage in both goods still gains from trade by exporting the good in which its relative advantage is greater. A country that is less productive in producing both goods still gains from trade by exporting the good in which its relative disadvantage is smaller.
We will learn from Aristotle, Winston Churchill, Steve Jobs, Ernest Shackelton's ill-fated trip to the South Pole, and the latest scholarly research. Extensive use will be made of case studies from the Harvard MBA program and guest speakers. One of the objectives of this course is to learn that "language." The emphasis will be on understanding financial statements both for profit and non-profit organizations. International accounting, ethics and investment decisions are also covered.

This knowledge can help you manage your money, make smart purchasing decisions, explore investment options and understand our local and national economic model.
