The Elements of Economic Analysis course sequence include three separate classes:
Elements of Economic Analysis 1 - June 21 through July 23 - This microeconomics course develops the tools economists use to analyze the behavior of markets, the theory of consumer choice, the behavior of firms in response to changing costs and prices, and the interaction of producer and consumer choice.
Elements of Economic Analysis 3 - June 21 through July 23 - As an introduction to macroeconomic theory and policy, this course covers the determination of aggregate demand (i.e., consumption, investment, the demand for money); aggregate supply; and the interaction between aggregate demand and supply. We also discuss economic growth, business cycle, inflation and money.
Elements of Economic Analysis 2 - July 26 through August 27 - This course examines demand and supply as factors of production and the distribution of income in the economy; it also considers some elementary general equilibrium theory and welfare economics.
