FYS-178 An Experimental Avatar: Discovering Economics

Instructor: Associate Professor Rimvydas Baltaduonis
Department: Economics

Course Description:
Students in this course will actively encounter economic principles in this introduction to microeconomics. We will explore how and why people use their time and money. Students will participate in economic experiments, games and simulation to discover general principles of economics. Working in small groups, we will design new experiments to see how changes in market rules affect people's behavior and the efficiency and fairness of economic outcomes.
