ECON 1014 Principles of Microeconomics: Critical Perspectives
This course is open to all students except those whose programs require ECON 1013 or 1073.
Three (3) credit hours
This course is an alternative introduction to microeconomics. The aim is to be less comprehensive than ECON 1013, but to go deeper into the core topics to provide a more thorough critical perspective. In the process, the political and philosophical ideas underlying conventional economic conclusions are examined. The limitations of conventional economic reasoning, and the biases that may exist, are exposed.
Both ECON 1013 and ECON 1014 provide good foundations in the principles of economics, and are necessary to take third and fourth year courses. For those interested in politics, sociology, or a critique of conventional economics as it is taught and practiced today, ECON 1014 is recommended.
Students with credit in ECON 1001, 1013 or 1073 may not take this course for credit.
Dr. Anthony Myatt, Department of Economics, University of New Brunswick.
