The lecture is based on a recent text book that provides additional examples and illustrations. Theoretical foundations presented in the lecture will be applied to problems in the exercise classes by solving mathematical applications and using graphical illustrations. The goal of the module is to encourage class participants to independently think about economic issues presented in class as well as to reflect upon recent economic literature. Students will be enabled to use instruments of analysis of economic problems.

class lecture
The module consists of a lecture and an exercise course. The lecture content will be delivered in a verbal presentation with the help of slides. Since the foundation of the lecture is a textbook including recent economic history, the teaching is full of real life examples. The content of the lecture is put into practice in the exercise course which applies the theoretical knowledge by basic mathematical calculations and graphical illustrations. Therefore, the module aims at encouraging participants to independently think about economic problems discussed in the lecture and in the current literature. Students are enabled to use the instruments (abstract and model thinking) for operationalizing economic problems and solve them in the conventional, mathematical manner.
