Current Economics Courses:


Survey of Economics (ECO 100)

Economics 100 is a survey course in economic theory designed for the first or second year college student.  The course will cover traditional economic topics including: money and banking, unemployment, inflation, capitalism and other economic systems, interest rates, supply and demand, the market mechanism, prices, factors of production and the theory of the firm.  Additionally, the course will address a host of social issues, such as: the health care crisis (?), pollution, airline deregulation, the S& L crisis, drugs, minimum wage laws and poverty.  In this course, we will attempt to relate economic theory to the real world - the world of people and businesses making decisions.  Students will have the opportunity to suggest topics or issues for class discussion.  In this process, we will question conventional wisdom! 

Sample Exams

Midterm Exam: Fall 1999

Final Exam: Spring 1999


Principles of Microeconomics (ECON% 201)

 

Economics 201, a microeconomics course, focuses on the activities of individual units within the economy - the firm and the individual consumer. Topics to be discussed include: scarcity, supply and demand, the market mechanism, prices, factors of production, the theory of the firm, and a variety of current issues such as minimum wage laws, rent control, pollution, divorce and abortion.  In this course we will attempt to relate economic theory to the real world - the world of people and businesses making decisions.

Principles of Macroeconomics (ECON% 202)

Economics 202, a macroeconomics course, focuses on the economy as a whole (or major subdivisions of it) and the relationship of economies with one another.    It should be emphasized that economics is a behavioral or social science that examines individual choice.  Choice involves a complex set of variables that would include cultural and social characteristics.  One cannot understand economics without a firm understanding of people or peoples. Topics to be discussed include:  scarcity, choice, determinants of supply and demand, national income and wealth, the public sector, measures of economic activity - unemployment, inflation, business cycles and output - money and banking, fiscal and monetary policies, financial markets and international trade and finance.
