Foundation Courses

This course addresses how scarcity forces individuals, firms, and societies to choose among alternative uses of its limited resources. At the same time, the various choices made by different economic agents must be mutually consistent. Markets are a mechanism to achieve such reconciliation. The course seeks to make the students understand how economists model the choice process of individual consumers and firms, and how markets work to coordinate these choices. It also examines how well markets perform this function using the economist’s criterion of market efficiency.
An introduction to general purpose financial statements including the balance sheet, the statement of income and retained earnings, and the statement of cash flow with an emphasis on understanding financial statements rather than their preparation. Financial statement ratios, useful in analysis, will also be introduced in the course.
