Microeconomics is the study of rational choice in a world of scarce resources. It examines how buyers and sellers, consumers and producers, make decisions about the allocation of resources in a capitalistic economic system. This course covers how a market system determines the "prices" of goods and services, the "prices" of factors of production and the incomes of individuals and families. Microeconomic tools will be used to explore a wide range of economic issues such as: Are monopolies bad? What will it take to make business in the United States more competitive in a global economy? Are minimum wage laws and rent controls good for society?
