This class covers some of the more basic concepts of game theory before going on to apply it to firm behaviour in oligopolies. The second half of the course will address welfare economics in more detail than ECON1101 and will go on to analyse topics in environmental economics and modern macroeconomics. It is designed as a first undergraduate course in these areas. Students are expected to have some "mathematical maturity", as the concepts will be explained via abstract mathematical models and examples. The course is designed for better performing students who want to extend their exposure to economics beyond that offered in the standard first year courses in microeconomics and macroeconomics.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
Upon successful completion of the requirements for this course, students will:
- Understand the basics of formal logic and how to apply them to establish the validity of arguments and statements.
- Describe the main ways we use theory in economics and identify the strengths and weakness of theories based on this framework.
- Be able to apply neoclassical consumer theory to solve economic problems.
- Describe and apply the major ideas from the philosophy of science as they apply to empirical work in economics.
- Identify and evaluate issues of causality and validity in observational and experimental studies.
This course may be taken as an alternative to ECON1102 Macroeconomics 1 and satisfies all prerequisites that would be satisfied by that course.
See the course outline on the College courses page. Outlines are uploaded as they become available.
Assessment will be based on class problem sets (25%) a mid-semester exam (25% redeemable) and a final exam (50% or 75%).
