Consumer Economics (ECON 330)

Mondays and Wednesdays, 5:00 – 6:45 p.m.

Prof: Kate Krause

When fully informed consumers rationally maximize their utilities by buying goods, they generate the kind of demand function that, when coupled with a competitive market’s supply function, leads, as if guided by an invisible hand, to a lovely and efficient equilibrium.

But what really happens when we all head out (or online) to shop?

In this version of Consumer Economics will mercilessly pick apart preferences, utility functions, good and bad choices, budget constraints and behavioral assumptions to help us better understand the very human – and sometimes not so rational – elements that form the demand side of markets.

No textbook, some mainstream and some off-the-beaten path readings, lots of hands-on stuff …. I hope that you will join me!


Brown Bag Schedule TBA
