Course description Students of this three-week course will cover principles of micro- and macro-economics, and receive an introduction to game theory. We will also cover the basics of different types of economic modelling, and their applications for economic policy and social science. The goal? To demystify past and present economic theories and models to give a clearer insight into this important field that influences the social and behavioural sciences in diverse ways. The course is divided into three blocks. In the first block students become familiar with the main tenants of microeconomics: how markets work, and why they fail, as well as economics of the public sector and labour markets. The second block introduces the participants to macroeconomics and gives an understanding of the economy in the long run. Students will learn about: money and prices, the real economy, data for macroeconomic indicators, and problems associated with the data quality for economics. Finally, in the third block, students are introduced to game theory and its application.
