Course Description and Objectives
The primary purpose of the introduction to microeconomics is to show students how the prices are determined in a market economy. Each student will be introduced to the concept of scarcity, allocation of scarce resources, demand and supply and equilibrium. Microeconomics is the study of how different markets are organized in the form of perfect competition, monopoly, monopolistic competition, and oligopoly; and how the basic problems that are involved in allocating, utilizing and distributing resources for the satisfaction of human wants, are resolved. The course includes material on how these prices and quantities affect consumers and business firms in both the product and resource markets.
