Economics is the science that studies the economy. This course is the
introduction to all the rest of economics. You will study markets and the
action that takes place inside them--buying and selling. You will get
answers to questions like the following: Why is the price of gasoline
below $1.00 a gallon? What is a price bubble? Why does a company like
General Electric make over $8 billion a year in profit? What is the market
game played between Coke and Pepsi? Your grade will depend on your
performance in the following categories:
12 weekly homework sets -- 180 points; 3 examinations -- 750 points,
participation -- 70 points, totaling 1000 points.
