Explore the principles of both micro and macroeconomics in Advanced Studies in Economics. By building an understanding of the issues of inequity and access, you will develop a working knowledge of the problems and issues in the economy of the United States. Through a study of how land, labor, and capital (the factors of production) contribute to the growth and operation of a market economy, how supply and demand affect price and output levels of goods, how government policies alter the working of the market, and how international factors influence a nation’s domestic economic conditions, you will develop a deeper appreciation for the nuances of the United States.
