Catching Up is Hard to Do

We have covered supply and demand

We have also discussed price floors and price ceilings.  Check this out for some real world discussion regarding the persons who actually earn minimum wage.

Check out this article on a price floor that existed in 1934.

"Real world" debate also exists about rent controls. Here is a shorter article. And another.

We took our first quiz last week.

On September 22 you take your first exam.

Welcome ECO 202!

Welcome to fall 2010, ECO 202 Principles of Macroeconomics!

I'm going to try to use this blog to provide you links to stuff that will help you keep up with what we've covered in class and give you alternate explanations.

I also want to link this Youtube video that was shown to me by another guy who teaches economics on one of my favorite messageboards (that has nothing to do with economics).

Catching Up

No better place to start than at the beginning.

Your third exam will be given on July 28.

So far we have discussed monopoly.

We have also discussed resource markets.

This included an extensive look at MRP, a discussion of using both capital and labor both in the cost minimizing manner and the profit maximizing manner.  Cost min - hire K & L in such quantities that the ratios of marginal product to price are equal for each.   Profit max - hire K & L in such quantities that the ratios of MRP to price are both equal to 1.  We also began discussing labor markets.

Very quick hit

I gave you a take home quiz last night.  It is due Monday July 26.

I'll try to get a blog post of what we've been covering with some links before lunch today.
