Pearson Prentice Hall. 2006. MyEconLab Course Description Economics 153 - the principles of microeconomics - is part of a two-course sequence. All economics courses concern the study of how individuals, or a society as a whole, decide to use their scarce resources in order to produce and distribute desired goods and services. In microeconomics the focus is on learning how a system of markets and prices operates to determine which goods and services a society produces and how much of each to produce. The emphasis is on studying individual decisions and decision-makers (for example, producers and consumers) and how production and consumption decisions are made in different types of markets. Although students typically take Economics 153 before Economics 154 either course may be taken first. There are no prerequisites for 153 but knowledge of linear algebra and some basic geometry will be put to good use. Graphical analysis will be used extensively. Evaluation and Grading
