Department of Economics Spring 2008 University of California Prof. Glenn Woroch Economics 100A MICRO-ECONOMIC ANALYSIS General. This course surveys the field of microeconomics at the intermediate level. It will cover the core concepts of consumer and producer behavior, market equilibrium and welfare analysis as well as imperfect competition and imperfect markets. Prerequisites include an economic principles course ( e.g. , Economics 1, 2 or 3, or EE&P 1) and an introductory calculus course ( e.g., Math 1A, 16A). It is not recommended that you take this course simultaneously with the prerequisites. While you are required to have calculus, I will use it as an alternative approach to convey key concepts. You can benefit from seeing the material through this other lens and you may discover a use for all that calculus you studied. Those who thirst for a more theoretical and more mathematical treatment of the same topics covered in this course are encouraged to take Economics 101A. Enrollment. Admission to the course will follow the standard TeleBears process. As usual, if you are unable to get an entry code, put your name on the waiting list. Neither the instructor nor the GSIs can admit you to the course. Econ majors, or students who will very soon be majors, are given preference. Contact the undergrad advisor, Jenny Cornet ( jenny@econ.berkeley.edu ), with questions about your standing. If you have any questions about enrollment or problems with the TeleBears process, please contact the Department’s GSI Coordinator, Jeff Butler ( headgsi@econ.berkeley.edu ).
