In any developed
economy scarce resources have to be mobilised and used to meet the public’s
needs. This course focusses on the processes involved, particularly those
common to modern western economies. It begins with market mechanism and price
formation. The background to demand (cardinal and ordinal utility) follow. The
neo-classical theory of supply is then introduced, leading from production
function analysis to the derivation of supply under perfect competition. Other
market forms follow, and the course concludes with sections on factor pricing
and international trade.
Course information is disseminated by means of hand–outs‚ announcements at lectures and the notice board. It is the student’s responsibility to be familiar with all course information. NOTE: Credit will not be given for both ECO1006F and ECO1010F/S.
