Welcome to EC155. The objective of this course is that each student learns how to use microeconomic reasoning to analyze individual, group, and societal behavior in a wide range of settings and to apply that reasoning to the challenges of our time.
This website (found at go/ec155), which we will build during the semester, serves several purposes. First, this website includes the material found in a standard syllabus: information about course requirements and readings. It also includes an ongoing weekly schedule, which will document current topics, required and recommended readings, course assignments, and handouts. Background for the eight weekly exercises can be found here. Finally, this page has supporting information about the course, including my Spring 2020 office hours
Good luck in this course. I am looking forward to it.
