Inhoud
Required/Required Elective. Cannot be followed by economics students. Cannot be combined with ECB1MI and EC2MIP.

•      Introductory course for Minor Economics for non-economics students;
 
Content 
What is the optimal consumption choice for a consumer given her preferences and income? When will a manager of a firm decide to expand production? What are the costs for the government when it supports the farmers with a per unit subsidy and is such a subsidy socially efficient?  Should monopolies be regulated and if so, how? When does it make sense for a firm to introduce a variable-wage payment scheme? Which attitudes to risk exist and how does this influence behaviour? Such questions will be treated in this course.

The course is especially designed for non-economics students, whether they want to follow just a single economics course, whether they want to have a firm basis in microeconomics to be able to follow further elective courses in economics, whether they want to do the course as part of a minor in Economics or whether they want to study law & economics, i.e. the economic analysis of laws.
