This course covers the concepts and methods of modern microeconomics. We begin with an overview of the competitive economy and develop the two fundamental theorems of welfare economics. We then study various types of imperfections in markets such as differential information and strategic interaction with a view to understanding the potential role for government policy. Topics covered include contract theory (with moral hazard and adverse selection problems), equilibrium concepts in game theory, and market signalling.
No information available.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will have acquired a grasp of the main principles and theories of modern microeconomics. In particular, students should have strong insights into the power and logic of economic reasoning and be able to apply those arguments to general issues.
No additional information available.
One two hour lecture and 1 hour class per week.
Feedback for this module will occur through class meetings where we will go over the answers to problem sets and where you will be able to ask questions about your own method of solution; answers that will be posted on the website for the module that will give you written guidance on the appropriate method to approach the problems, assignments, and tests; and office hours where any additional questions can be addressed. You should be sure that you use these methods to understand how to improve your own performance.
This module does not appear to have a published bibliography for this year.

be necessary to make changes, for example to programmes, modules, facilities or fees. Examples of such reasons might include a change of law or regulatory requirements,
industrial action, lack of demand, departure of key personnel, change in government policy, or withdrawal/reduction of funding. Changes to modules may for example consist
of variations to the content and method of delivery or assessment of modules and other services, to discontinue modules and other services and to merge or combine modules.
The University will endeavour to keep such changes to a minimum, and will also keep students informed appropriately by updating our programme specifications and module directory.
