The lower level liberal studies course introduces the economic way of thinking. Economists seek objective ways to analyse how humans act in social settings. Economic models or theories are used to understand economic behaviour. The course uses basic supply and demand theory to analyze a range of economic issues such as how university fees are set or the effect of the minimum wage on unemployment. At a microeconomic level students will learn how to analyse markets under different structures such as perfect competition and monopoly. At a macroeconomic level students will learn how to analyse how the Canadian economy works and how the major problems of unemployment and inflation can be dealt with.
