Inhalte der LV

This course is the second half of the Microeconomics series. It covers advanced topics in microeconomic theory, including: General equilibrium (exchange and production); Externalities, Uncertainty (risk-aversion); Externalities and Public Goods, Asymmetric Information (moral hazard and adverse selection).


Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

After completing this course, students will have gained the analytical and methodological skills to understand and address more advanced microeconomic questions and problems. They will understand: 1) how different markets interact with each other in general equilibrium models; 2) the several ways in which the violation of the perfect market assumption (i.e., market failures) affects market outcomes; 3) how uncertainty plays into the model of economic behavior.
