Spring 2011 Donald J. Boudreaux W: 7:20pm-10:00pm 331 Enterprise Hall dboudrea@gmu.edu (703) 993-1151 [office telephone] (703) 993- 1133 [office fax] www.cafehayek.com OFFICE HOURS: M, W, Th: 10:00am-12:00pm, and by appointment. I’m often in my office for much of the workweek beyond the times listed here (although I am usually at my Arlington campus office on Tuesdays). I’m always happy to meet with you during non-office hours if my schedule permits. Please feel free to drop by at any time. If you drop by during non-office hours and if I’m then involved in other tasks, I’ll ask you to come back later. But if I have nothing pressing going on at the moment, I’ll be delighted to discuss the class and economics with you. TEXTBOOK: Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok, Modern Principles: Microeconomics PURPOSE OF COURSE: With this course I aim to introduce you to the economic way of thinking so that you are better able to understand your world. As this course begins, you likely don’t know what economics is. I believe that you’ll be surprised – and pleasantly so – to learn that it is exciting, intellectually rich, and essential. My goal is to help you to improve your ability to comprehend reality – for example, by learning of how prices are determined and what roles they play; by exploring more deeply the motivations and constrains that shape human choices; by learning to be always on the look-out for unintended consequences – in general, by learning always to ask “As compared to what?” and to think critically in a productive way about society, the market, and government.
