Cíle předmětu
The course introduces students to the basic tools of analysis of the real world economic processes. The first part of the course focuses on the specifics of human conduct in the economy. By understanding basic human economic behavior we will have laid the solid foundation for introducing both the basic economic concepts for analyzing economic behavior on the individual level (microeconomics) and behavior of the economy as a whole (macroeconomics). Analyzing modern real world economic processes is not possible without understanding the role of money in our society and there is enough attention given to this phenomena in the course. The last lectures reveal that there is some plurality in economic thinking and the students are encouraged to consider perspectives from several schools of economic thought.
Výstupy z učení
At the end of the course, students should acquire basic skills as well as tools for analysis of relevant real world economics processes. Students should understand the most important concepts of analysis used in economic science. This will be complemented by their understanding of the main differences between the most important economic schools. Altogether, information in this course should also give students the ability to easily recognize the essence of the economic problems their encounter in their future study or work and quickly look up and more easily understand the more complicated concepts and tools required for their solution.
