ECON20180 Intermediate Microeconomics II

Academic Year 2022/2023

This is the second module in a two-semester study of intermediate microeconomics. The first module, ECON20010 Microeconomics I, covered the analysis of Demand and Supply, Consumer Theory, Producer Theory, and Competitive Markets. Students should take ECON20010 prior to taking ECON20180. (Note: Students can take ECON20180 even if they have failed ECON20010). ECON20180 builds on the topic of competitive markets with an analysis of Economic Welfare. It then examines outcomes under imperfectly competitive markets, decision-making under Uncertainty and with Asymmetric Information, Externalities, and Public Goods. A reasonable level of mathematical background is assumed.
