Week 2-4, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays 1100-1200 (GMT+8), 12h in total
The goal of this course is to present the tools of microeconomics and show how they can be used to analyze problems faced by consumers, firms, and the government. In particular, we will study consumers’ optimal consumption choices, firms’ optimal production decisions, and see how the interaction between consumers and firms determines price. We will discuss conditions under which market prices allocate resources efficiently, and when they fail to do so. We will analyze strategic interactions between big firms and their optimal pricing strategies. No originality is claimed, and the use and distribution of any of the course materials should be of educational purposes only.
