Provides students with a deeper understanding of consumer and producer behaviour in the market. Students will develop the skills to perform microeconomic policy analysis through examining several economic models that will explain and predict a wide variety of economic phenomena.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Explain the assumptions underlying the model of consumer behaviour and analyse how consumers make optimal choices given their budget constraints;
2. Distinguish between different production functions and evaluate the optimal combination of inputs for firms given the technology of production and input cost;
3. Apply game theory methods to evaluate the strategic decision-making of different economic agents;
4. Critically evaluate how asymmetric information affects the efficiency of markets and what type of signalling mechanisms can be designed to address such issues; and
5. Reflect upon their unit experience, including theories, discussions and feedback, and how it relates to the goals set out in their professional portfolio.
One 2 hour lecture and one 1 hour tutorial on-campus per week.
