This course is a one-semester introductory survey of the three main areas of Economics: Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and International Economics. No previous study of Economics is assumed. It serves not only as a basis for further study in Economics, other social sciences, business and commerce, but also provides an insight into the economic way of thinking that will help any citizen of a modern democratic society understand how policy-making is informed by Economics.
