8/22/16 Microeconomics ECO 2023 Week 1 – Day 1 Lecture Notes Introduction to Economics:  Math is an important tool for economics.  Reality is incredibly complex. So, simplified models allow us to understand this complexity.  Math that we use in this class is mostly diagrams and algebra.  Economics is a social science. Microeconomics: The study of individual firms, consumers, and markets within the economy. Macroeconomics: Study of the aggregate (overall) economy. Three Big Economic Questions: 1. WHAT? What goods and services will be produced and in what quantities? 2. HOW? How will the goods and services be produced? 3. WHO? For whom will the goods and services be produced? Methods of Organizing an Economy:  Tradition: This year’s answers are the same as last year’s answers.  Command: Government planners determine the answers and then create plans for producers. (Ex: North Korea, Cuba) o Can’t channel people’s private interests/incentives to do what’s best for the economy.  Capitalism: Markets, prices, property rights. (Ex: USA) o Markets: any arrangement that allows buyers and sellers to transact their business. (Allows buyers to buy, and sellers to sell.)  Prices are generated in markets.  Allocate resources in our economy (the what, how, and whom/3 big economic questions) o Property Rights: socially determined, legal rights that govern the use of and the disposal of property.  Differ between societies  Determine who owns things  Allocate resources in our economy (the what, how, and whom)  Property: can be land, labor  Ex: ownerofMcDonaldshaspropertyrightsoverallthechoices madewith the business of McDonalds All economies combine elements of different methods of organizing an economy. All economies are “mixed economies” to some extent. Some countries have more mixed economies than others.
