Welcome to EC155c. 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. This fall, we will features food and food systems as a way to learn about microeconomic reasoning.
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. The courses five problem sets will be found here. Finally, this page has supporting information about the course, including my fall 2015 office hours
Good luck in this course. I am looking forward to it.
