ECON 2 Economic Principles and Policies

This is a general survey course for students who have had no previous college level economics and who do not plan to take further economics courses. It is divided between microeconomic concepts-supply and demand, labor and capital markets, tax incidence, comparative advantage, international trade, and benefit-cost analysis-and macroeconomic issues such as economic growth, unemployment inflation, national income and product accounting, the banking system, and monetary and fiscal policy. Applications to current policy issues will be emphasized throughout. ECON 2 may be taken under the Non-Recording Option (NRO). It does not count towards the major or minor.




Students who have previously taken ECON 1 or who have been exempted from ECON 1 at matriculation may not enroll in ECON 2. Completion of ECON 2 does not, however, preclude subsequent enrollment in ECON 1.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
