As a professional manager, you need not only the management knowledge but also an insight on the circumstance your organization is facing. The most important aspect of the circumstance for a company is the market. Hence, a student of business should have some ideas about what the market is. After you complete this one-year’s course, we hope you can have a preliminary understanding of the market and trade. Economics has two parts: macroeconomics and microeconomics. Macroeconomics deals with issues such as economic growth, business cycles, monetary policies, and international finance. Microeconomics focuses on consumer behavior and companies’ decisions, and studies how these interactions among people and companies shape markets. Therefore, this course has also two parts: I will teach you microeconomics in this semester, and macroeconomics will be arranged in the next semester. In the first semester (Economics I), I will teach you basic concepts of the market from an economist’s perspective. Of course, you can also learn markets from a sociologist’s perspective in the future. The economists’ way to understand markets starts from a study of the participants in the market. We assume that participants in the market are rational, and observe how these rational participants shape the market. There are two main participants in markets: consumers and producers. Hence, I will discuss consumers’ and producers’ behavior, and how they shape the market. Moreover, I will talk also the system which ensures that people are willing to participate in markets: participants should ensure that they will not be robbed or defrauded before they become consumers or producers. Hence, we need a system of property rights and an institution which can protect every participant’s rights in markets. If this system cannot protect some participants from being defrauded or robbed, it will cause some serious problems. I will also discuss these problems: externalities and public goods.
1. Students will have basic ideas on markets. 2. Students can know an economist’s perspective on the society. 3. Train students to participate the discussion of public affairs.
