Principle of Economics (with Recitation) (1) National Taiwan University
[For the complete info, please refer to http://homepage.ntu.edu.tw/~josephw/principles_micro_15F.htm ] This is the introductory class for the principles of microeconomics. It serves as an introduction of economics to an audience that are not familiar with Calculus. (Those who have took Calculus should consider taking microeconomics instead.) One interesting feature of this class is there will be various classroom experiments throughout the semester, and students are expected to participate actively in them. This is a course taught in English, and all assignments are in English. If you feel that you would be in a disadvantaged position, please take other principles classes instead.
The Goal of this class is to introduce how economists think (without the math required for microeconomics), and, help you think like an economist! Specifically, we will see how economists observe real world phenomenon, build simplified models of reality, derive theories to provide policy advice, and test implications with empirical or experimental data.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
