This subject introduces students to the basic economic concepts and principles. Students will gain a sufficient understanding of the concepts to apply them in both work and everyday life. The subject provides a foundation for further studies in economics and more generally in business, management, and marketing. Students will be also able to follow discussions about the current business environment and effectively participate in the formulation of business strategies. The subject is designed as a combination of micro and macro issues at an introductory level. The first half of the subject introduces students to the tools of economic analysis, an understanding of price formation, the behaviour of firms and consumers and the basic models of market structure and their efficiency. The second half of the subject covers the key macroeconomic concepts such as inflation and unemployment, and fiscal and monetary policy.
