NEW INFO on textbook (updated August 16, 2021)

The publisher (Pearson) has just offered a special price of $29 for the electronic version available through the U bookstore. If you purchase this ebook, you will find it waiting for you in Canvas (as I have been told!). This is a new option. You don't need to purchase any study guides or other accompanying materials.

Here is the Bookstore info page on Inclusive Access. Per the page, "Upon enrolling in a course using Inclusive Access, students are considered opted in, and will be charged for the cost of the digital materials through their student account. Students will either receive access to their content through Canvas, along with a welcome email from noreply@verbasoftware.com, or in a separate email from the U of MN Bookstores by the first day of class.

If students do not want to receive the digital course materials through Inclusive Access, they can opt out via the emailed link, or by emailing inclusiveaccess@umn.edu with their course information and requesting to opt out before the deadline. After this, a refund for the initial Inclusive Access charge will be issued, and the student will be considered opted out, meaning they will lose access to the Inclusive Access digital content."
Who Should Take This Class?:
Most of the students will be first year MPP students, but students in other graduate degree programs are welcome to enroll. Most students will have had a prior microeconomics course, but that is not required. The Humphrey School offers an online review program called Foundations for Success that some students might want to look into that helps students review some basic algebra.
Learning Objectives:
The objective of this course is for you to understand consumer and firm decisions and to understand when government intervention in the private market may be efficient and/or equitable. We will explore how resources are allocated in a market economy and we will investigate the role of government in a market economy (or mixed economy) such as the United States. We will focus most of our time developing the analytical microeconomic tools needed to discuss efficiency and fairness concerns and throughout the semester we will apply these tools to various relevant public policy examples.
This course contributes to several learning objectives for the MPP program, especially (3) "to analyze, synthesize, think critically, solve complex problems, and make decisions" and (4) to understand the role of government in a market economy.
Grading:
The course grade will be based on the homeworks ,in class exams,quizzes,and the cumulative final exam.
Exam Format:
The exams will be a combination of multiple choice, short one paragraph answers, and problems involving algebra and graphical analysis.
Class Format:
We'll be meeting in person this fall unless university directives change.
Workload:
The university's policy titled "Expected student academic work per credit" indicates that at least two additional hours of work per week is expected for each hour of class time for graduate students.
