    COURSE OUTLINE AND GRADING POLICY

    1. LECTURES:
    Students are expected to have completed the reading prior to lecture. Attendance is mandatory at the lectures, and exams will focus primarily on material presented in lecture. In this course, each new concept requires a solid understanding of what was taught previously. Therefore, it is essential that you keep up right from the beginning. If you fall behind, it will be very difficult to catch up.

    Prerequisite: Understanding Economics (or Principles of Economics)
