Intermediate Microeconomics

The aim of the course is to show how these tools can be used to explain how different markets work. Price theory helps explain different consumer and producer behaviour, monopoly pricing and certain forms of market failure while game theory focuses on strategic interaction and helps analyse for example oligopolistic competition and contractual agreements.

This course replaces Intermediate Microeconomics with course code EC2101.
