Conditions of Use:

Rating

Lecture Objective: Introduce students to the price system - how markets connect to one another and form a sophisticated global network that is constantly adjusting based on price signals. We use a Valentine’s Day analogy to illustrate key points.

The lesson incorporates a few MRU videos from MRU's Principles of Microeconomics video course. We also mix in discussion prompts, exercises, practice questions, and pre- and post-class assignments. Finally, we provide supplementary resources such as additional data sources, relevant news articles and blog posts, and an episode of Planet Money.
