This course is designed to offer non-economics major students a broad understanding of the world around them at both a microeconomic and a macroeconomic level. Firm decision-making tools and consumer choice mechanisms will be studied.

Production function, profit maximization conditions, and the basics of firm behavior will help the student to understand some aspects of the firm decision-making process. At a macroeconomic level, several aggregate variables will be studied, including GDP, the consumer price index, the monetary system, and economic policies implementation.
