Abstract: The main goal of this course is to equip the student with problem solving tools which should help him or her solve economics problems systematically. Students should also develop economic intuition which will help them analyze policies they will encounter in this course and for the rest of their life. These objectives will provide the student with a framework for thinking about the world around us and to develop intuitions from that framework. Students who plan to major in economics will learn invaluable tools needed in later courses. Students who do not should be able to make more sense of the world because of this course. I emphasize understanding rather than memorization. Students should learn the economic way of thinking, and problems in this course are designed to aim students toward the goal of thinking like an economist.
