Economics I


This course provides an introduction to basic concepts of microeconomics. It deals with the behaviour of individual economic units, such as households, business firms, and public institutions. Another concern is how these units interact to form markets and industries. How can consumer decisions be explained and how can aggregate demand be derived from consumer choice? Which are the factors that determine the production decisions of companies? How do equilibrium prices emerge in competitive markets, how in monopoly markets? What is the effect of government interventions in markets (e.g. taxes, price controls)? How does market power affect social welfare? Which factors lead to market failure?
