After reviewing how things work on an idealized, perfectly competitive economy, the course looks at the effects of firms and people interacting in imperfect markets. Issues such as monopoly power, the presence of externalities, public goods, game theory, and imperfect information are analyzed. Simple economic principles are applied to the study of labor markets and income disparity, and we explore the economics of health care and environmental and safety regulation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
