The course objective is to provide students with an introduction to Economics and the Economic way of thinking. At the end of the course the student should have a basic understanding of how people make decisions, how people interact, and how the economy as a whole works. This course will provide a framework for viewing and interpreting the economic world.

The course is built around Gregory Mankiw's Principles of Economics but also draws knowledge and examples from other sources including the wikibook textbook Principles of Economics.
