BECO 1655A - Intermediate Microeconomics

Type d'enseignement : Seminar

Semester : Autumn 2017-2018

Number of hours : 34

Language of tuition : English


Basic Calculus and Probability Theory: equations, derivatives, optimization problems, probabilities and expected values

Course Description

The course complements the first year microeconomics course. It takes an institution-free approach to economics, in which we start from usual economic problems, try to understand the basic tensions at work, and derive institutions as possibly constrained solutions to these problems. In the process, we introduce the basic ideas of social choice, game theory, and mechanism design.
