The course aims at introducing you to graduate-level microeconomic theory. Topics discussed will be:

- Consumer Theory
- Producer Theory
- Choice under uncertainty
- Partial equilibrium and market structure
- General Equilibrium
- Externalities and Public Goods
- Elements of Social Choice Theory (time permitting)

Knowledge of intermediate-level microeconomics is helpful but not necessary. The course will give emphasis to problem solving. For this reason problem sets will be assigned during the course at dates to be communicated in class. Students will then rotate on the board in a following lecture to discuss the problems. There is no required textbook for the course. However, the material presented in class will be taken from Mas-Collel, Whinston, and Green "Microeconomic Theory", which you are encouraged to consult.
