Course Objectives/Course Description

 

This course primarily deals with the basic concepts and theories of Micro Economics and is divided into 7 units. The first unit is titled Introduction to Economics and will introduce the fundamental concepts, terms and terminologies used in microeconomic analysis. Unit 2 (Theory of Demand and Supply) discusses the most important analytical tools of economics-demand, supply and equilibrium, along with different types and degrees of elasticity and their measurements. Unit 3 (Theory of Costs, Production and Revenue) combines the traditional economic theories pertaining to Production, Costs and Revenue. Unit 4 (Consumer and Producer Behavior) deals with the various theories of Consumer and Producer behavior and the analytical tools used by both economic entities in the determination of utility and profit. Unit 5 (Behavior of the Firm) extensively deals with the different kinds of markets and how price and output is determined in different market models. Unit 6 (Public Finance and Taxation) is from the domain of Pubic Economics and is designed to give elementary inputs in the areas of fiscal policy, public expenditure and taxation. Finally, Unit 7 (Macro Economic Variables and Policies) introduces the basic macroeconomic concepts and variables and their measurement, and the contemporary debates of Macroeconomics.

The course is specifically designed for students with no formal background or a little acquaintance with Economics-with a major thrust on Micro Economics. A good grasp of Micro Economics is vital for economic decision making, for designing and understanding public policy from a legal perspective, and more generally for appreciating how a modern economy functions. The main objective of the course is to give the students with a clear understanding of the basic concepts, tools of analysis and terminologies used in Economics, which will facilitate their understanding of various legal phenomena and their economic implications. The course will also prepare the students to undertake Institutional Economics and Law & Economics in their 2nd and 4th semester respectively by providing a strong theoretical foundation of Micro Economics. The emphasis is to provide the subject matter in a manner that is easy to understand and the aim is to make the exposition clear and accessible as well as lively and engaging-with a minimal reliance on mathematics.
