Class Description:
Introduction to tools useful for public policy: intermediate microeconomics, macroeconomics, concepts of international trade. Both this section and the class taught be Judy Temple will be at a similar level. We will teach how to calculate derivatives, but will not have more calculus required beyond this. This approach will make it easier to understand class concepts and will not be much more challenging than standard applications using algebra.
