Microeconomics is concerned primarily with the market activities of individual economic units such as consumers, resource owners and business firms. It is concerned with the flow of goods and services from business firms to consumers, the composition of the flow and the process for establishing the relative prices of the component parts of the flow. Microeconomics is also knows as the Theory of the Firm or Price Theory. It uses quantitative applications to determine optimal levels of output, resource allocation and capacity planning. It also provides tools for the evaluation of public policy. Capitalism thrives on honesty and transparency and personal trust is the currency of business . Ethics and the influence of political, social, legal and regulatory, environmental and technological issues will be discussed throughout the course. It is recommended that you get into the life-long habit of reading The Wall Street Journal on a regular basis. From time-to-time, articles from the Journal will be brought to the attention of the class and discussed. These articles are to be considered required reading. A multipurpose calculator; that is, one with more than the standard four functions (add, subtract, multiply and divide) will be needed.

    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.
