COURSE DESCRIPTION: (E201 = old E271)
This course considers resource allocation by the market mechanism. It examines consumer and firm behavior, the price system and market structures, and the composition and distribution of national output. General equilibrium and an introduction to welfare economics are also addressed.

(ECON111 AND ECON112 AND MATH221) OR (ECON110 AND MATH118) OR ECON105
Students who believe they meet the spirit but not the letter of these prerequisites (e.g.  a 5 on the AP calculus exam or introductory courses taken at another campus) should consult with the instructor right away.  You will need a prerequisite override form if you don't satisfy precisely the above requirements.
