Economics is one of the fundamental social sciences because it systematically investigates the economic relationships and interactions among people living in a society. Students in the course acquire a basic understanding of both the subject of economics and the approach used by economists in their study of economic questions. Thus, students learn about both the content and the methodology of economics. The contemporary international economic environment is characterized by globalization and competition. This reality confronts the USA and its people with a number of economic challenges and opportunities. Economics 202 presents students with an opportunity to read about, think about and discuss these issues. In discussions and exams students are asked to apply their developing knowledge of the content and methodology of economics to an analysis of a variety of economic problems, as well as to an evaluation of government policy measures designed to respond to these problems.
