What is intermediate microeconomics? Microeconomics studies how households and firms make decisions to allocate limited resources. Microeconomics examines how these decisions affect the supply and demand for goods and services, which determines prices; and how prices determine the quantity supplied and quantity demanded of goods and services. Microeconomics analyzes market mechanisms that establish relative prices among goods and services and the allocation of limited resources among many alternative uses. Microeconomics analyzes market failure : where markets fail to produce efficient results. (adapted from Wikipedia)

    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.
