21210241 - PRINCIPLES OF ECONOMICS

The main aim of the course is to provide the basic elements of political economy in the fields both of microeconomics (theories of consumption, of production, of prices and market forms) and macroeconomics (determination of national income, markets of goods, money and labor, introduction to the open economy and to international economic relations).

At the end of the course, students
- will have become familiar with the fundamental categories of economic analysis, also through the basic knowledge of approaches and differences within economic modeling;
- will be able to focus both in a micro and macro economic key the relevance of behaviors and choices of economic agents and the interdependence between markets in determining national income.
