This course will help you develop the supertools of economic thinking and better understand how the economy works. Learning how to think like an economist will help you see the world more clearly, empowering you to make better decisions at work, at home, and in your community and help you understand how other people make decisions. Every decision is an economic decision and you'll discover in this class the economic forces that shape the world around you. These tools will be used to understand how public policy shapes behavior and why policy makers don't always get the outcomes they were hoping for with their policies. This course is for anyone who knows that economics will help them better understand the world, but only wants to take one semester of economics as an undergraduate.

This course should not be taken by students who have already taken Econ 101 and Econ 102.
