Course summary

In studying economics you will learn how individuals and society make choices about how scarce resources are used, what products are produced and who gets to consume them. These choices depend on evaluating costs, benefits, risks and effects on others.

You will study the principles of microeconomics and macroeconomics and will have the opportunity to develop an interest in fields such as government policy, developing countries, the economics of business and international trade and finance.
