Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The module aims to enable students to develop a deeper understanding of economic concepts introduced in first–year analysis and to introduce new concepts in both micro and macroeconomic analysis. New concepts include material drawn from general equilibrium, welfare economics, game theory, rational expectations and time consistency. The module aims to introduce students to the analysis of public policy issues such as market failure and counter-inflation policy.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module, the student will be expected to be familiar with a range of tools for the analysis of both micro and macroeconomic problems. The student will have a rigorous knowledge of the theoretical models which underlie economic analysis and an understanding of both the applicability and the limitations of particular models and approaches.
