By Malavikka

Microeconomics is all about how individual human actions bring about various changes in production and utilization of resources. This Microeconomics course is part of the Masachusset Institute of Technology's MicroMasters program in Data, Economics, and Development Policy (DEDP).

In this course, you will learn about microeconomic theory, together with some empirical results and policy implications. You'll analyze mathematical models that describe the real-world behavior of consumers and firms, and you'll see how prices make the world go 'round.
