2 Goals This course aims to prepare: 1. Students with some tools and methods of economic analysis that will serve as the basis for a more advanced course of study in microeconomic theory. 2. The non-specialists economics student with a good introduction to the fundamental principles of microeconomics. 3. Both specialist and non-specialist economics students to use the concepts to which they are introduced to facilitate analysis of the functioning of the micro-economy, inclusive of those in the Caribbean. Learning Outcomes Upon completion of this course students will be able to demonstrate an exposure to (or awareness of) the basic elements of microeconomics including the concepts of demand and supply and the functioning of markets, including the assumptions that underlie such concepts. Specifically, at the end of the course students must be able to: Define and distinguish basic concepts and economic terminologies; Describe, explain and apply graphically, mathematically and in words, the underlying microeconomic theories applicable to hypothetical and real case studies; and Analyse and solve problems using the concepts and diagrams introduced.
